M1.5: Map gives "invalid target architecture"

Description

Keywords: M1.5, invalid, target, architecure, map,

Urgency: Standard

General Description
When running map in M1.5, it may give you "invalid target architecture", although you are targetting the valid device.

Solution

Check your Xilinx install tree, to be sure all the necessary files have been installed.

For example if you are targetting xc4044xl, go to:
$XILINX/xc4000xl/data/
And make sure these files exists:
4044xl.axy
4044xl.bxd
4044xl.grc
4044xl.grd
4044xl.grf
4044xl.nph
4044xl.pkg
4044xl.spd

If you do NOT have these files installed, then you will need to re-install M1.5 tools. During installation, when you come across a step where you can select the Architecture, and see "3-subcomponents" or "2-subcomponents", highlight that architecture and hit "Change" button. This will show all the sub components of that family. Be sure to select all the devices you need, and continue with installation.
