Generate Tcl Script does not generate programming file with Spartan 3A-DSP

Description

When I click on Project > Generate Tcl Script in ISE, normally my script is generated with a "Generate Programming file" section in the code, similar to the following:

 

set task "Generate Programming File"
   if { ! [run_task $task] } {
      puts "$myScript: $task run failed, check run output for details."
      project close
      return
   }


When the part is set as a Spartan 3A-DSP, this section is not generated.

However when it is set to the default Spartan 3 device, this section does get generated.

Solution

The current workaround for this is to add the following code to the Tcl script, starting on line 78 just below the "set task 'Implement Design'" section:
 

  set task "Generate Programming File"
   if { ! [run_task $task] } {
      puts "$myScript: $task run failed, check run output for details."
      project close
      return
   }
