12.x Project Navigator - SmartXplorer grayed out for a EDK based design


SmartXplorer seems to be grayed out for an EDK based design in Project Navigator. This was not the case with earlier releases of software.

Is this a known issue? How can we work around this issue?


The SmartXplorer process is disabled (grayed out) if an XMP file is selected as the top module in a Project Navigator project.

To work around this issue, a user can do one of the following:
  • Create an HDL wrapper for the XMP module and designate the wrapper as the top level module.
  • Run SmartXplorer from command line.
This issue will be resolved in ISE Design Suite 13.1.
