11.4/12.1 Smartxplorer - Pack:1380 - Specified macro file "./IO_DDR_routethru_u.nmc" does not exist

Description

When running SmartXplorer, I am getting the following error during map. This does not happen if I run map without using SmartXplorer

Pack:1380 - Specified macro file "./IO_DDR_routethru_u.nmc" does not exist

How can I work around the issue?

Solution

This is a known issue with the 11.4 SmartXplorer tools. SmarXplorer is not copying over the necessary .nmc files when running map.

If you are running SmartXplorer through the GUI, you will have to copy over the .nmc file into the smartxplorer_setup directory as soon as it gets created by SmartXplorer

If you are running command line SmartXplorer, you will have to copy over the .nmc file into each of the run directory as soon as it gets created. This issue has been fixed in ISE 12.1 software.

A new issue was found in the 12.1 tools with regards to sx and .nmc files. If the .nmc file is not in the project directory and is in a separate directory pointed to by the macro search path, SmartXplorer issues this following error:

Error Pack:1380 - Specified macro file "../seema/seema1/nmc/seema_WA.nmc" does not exist.

Although it identifies the path , it never picks up the file. The workaround is to copy the .nmc file into the project directory. This problem was fixed in ISE 12.2 software.
