Vivado - Why is the project path in the .xpr an absolute path? Does it matter if I copy the project to another location manually?

Description

The project path in the .xpr file is an absolute path. 

If I copy the project to another location manually, will Vivado find the source files in the new location?

Solution

As long as the relative location relationship between the .xpr file and the source files is not changed, Vivado will find the source files in the new location.

Vivado should do the following:

  • Store the absolute path of each source.
  • Reconcile the absolute path of the source to establish a relative path based on the current location of the project.
  • Use the established relative path to the source if it exists.
  • Look for the source in the absolute path location if the established relative path to the source does not exist.
