14.5 PlanAhead - "ERROR: [Common 17-180] Spawn failed: No error..."

Description

If I launch XPA from a PlanAhead tool project, the following error occurs:

launch_xpa
ERROR: [Common 17-180] Spawn failed: No error
ERROR: [Common 17-69] Command failed: Failed launch 'xpa -intstyle pa "file.ncd" "file.pcf"'

Solution

There are two ways to work around this error:

  • You can copy the PlanAhead console XPA command into Notepad and replace all of the '/' characters with '\'.
  • You can run Archive Design from Project > Archive Design. After this has been run, XPA should run without error.

This issue has been resolved in the PlanAhead 14.6 tool.
