14.2 PlanAhead - "ERROR: [Common 17-161] Invalid option value specified for 'objects'."


The following error message appears when a "Simulation set" is launched:

ERROR: [Common 17-161] Invalid option value specified for 'objects'.


This error occurs if there are spaces in the "Simulation Set" name (e.g., "wts_test (spartan 3e)") and a Windows configuration file (*.wcfg) is added to the simulation process (under Simulation options -> Simulation tab).

To work around the problem, you can either:

  • remove the configuration file (*.wcfg) from the Simulation so all signals will be plotted, or
  • create a new "Simulation Set" name without spaces (e.g., "behavioral_sim_spartan3").

This issue is resolved in the 14.3 PlanAhead tool.
