14.x XPower Analyzer - "EXCEPTION:Pds:Pds_PdlBlock.c:319:1.24 - Mode mismatch error."

Description

After I run XPower Analyzer from both the tool and command line, the following exception and fatal error occurs:

EXCEPTION:Pds:Pds_PdlBlock.c:319:1.24 - Mode mismatch error.
FATAL_ERROR:PowerEstimator:Portability/export/Port_Main.h:159:1.108 - This
   application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot
   recover.  Process will terminate. For technical support on this issue, please
   open a WebCase with this project attached at http://www.xilinx.com/support

Is this a known issue? Can I work around this problem?

Solution

This is a known issue which affects some Kintex-7 FPGA designs when the "-ol high" switch is enabled.

To work around the issue, you can disable the "-ol high" switch to allow XPower Analyzer to complete.
