13.1 - XPS GUI - I get MHS subproperty errors upon creating my EDK project in the GUI


I am using the BSB GUI to generate a project. However, upon completion I am getting the errors seen below:

ERROR:EDK - system.mhs line 6Port property value is not specified
ERROR:EDK -system.mhs line 6Error adding subproperty '000000' to PORT. Unknownsubproperties are not allowed.
ERROR:EDK -system.mhs line 7Port property value is not specified

How can I fix this?


This issue is related to a regional settings issue on your OS. For the English version the decimal character is '.', while in French it is ','.
So, for example, intheFrench version ofWindows, the CPU frequency is written "400,00000" instead of "400.00000", which is causing the error.

It is recommended that theregional setting on your OS should be set toto English.

On your Win7 machine, this is in the control Panel. Click on the Clock, Language and Regional settings.
