Vivado HLS 2012.2 - Hangs when creating a project in a directory that contains a # symbol.


I'm trying to create a new Vivado HLS project but when I click finish the application hangs and does not move on from the "Create Project" window.

The project directory name contains a # symbol.


If you have a # symbol in the directory where you are trying to create a project, Vivado HLS 2012.2 will hang.

Please rename the directory so that it does not contain the # symbol.


This issue is resolved in  release 2012.4.

The GUI now warns about illegal characters found in the path as shown below.
