CORE Generator - Working directory C:/my_design/tmp is not writable; abandoning backup"

Description

After moving a project, upgrading or regenerating an IP core givesanerror similar to the following in a pop-up window.

"The following error occurred: Working directory C:/test_proj\FIR_FP/SysGen/tmp is not writable; abandoning backup"

Solution

If the project has been moved or copied, the original working directory reported in the CORE Generator Project (.cgp) file may not exist.

Open the .cpg file in a text editorand edit the Working Directory line to point to a valid, writablelocation. This will typically be the new project directory location followed by \tmp.

Example: From the example in the description, change:

SET workingdirectory = C:/test_proj\FIR_FP/SysGen/tmp

to:

SET workingdirectory = C:\new_location\proj_directory\tmp
