14.5 Project Navigator - Synthesizing a Schematic design results in "ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387 - TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'can't read "iFileType": no such variable'."


I have created a project containing schematic design sources, when I attempt to synthesize the design or View Functional Model, an error similar to the following appears:

Project Navigator is not properly handling the return code from the schematic DRC check. If any DRC errors exist in a schematic, this error (ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387) is issued.

In the example above, the net size does not match the connected pin size; this leads to a valid error (ERROR:DesignEntry:20 - Pin "O" is connected to a bus of a different width).

Once the design is corrected to remove the DRC errors, the "ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387" error will also be resolved along with the Tcl code information below it.

This issue has been fixed in ISE Design Suite 14.6.
