2013.2 IPI - ERROR: [BD 41-431] Unable to delete IP C:/​AMS/​vivado_​proj/​xadc_​eval_​design_​zc702.srcs/​sources_​1/​bd/​design_​1/​ip/​design_​1_​auto_​pc_​0/​design_​1_​auto_​pc_​0.xci


When trying to open a block design in Vivado I receive the errors below:

ERROR: [BD 41-431] Unable to delete IP C:/AMS/vivado_proj/xadc_eval_design_zc702.srcs/sources_1/bd/design_1/ip/design_1_auto_pc_0/design_1_auto_pc_0.xci

ERROR: [Common 17-39] 'open_bd_design' failed due to earlier errors.


What is causing this?



This is due to a bug in valid_design that assumes certain directory naming conventions for automatically generated .xci files inside the axi interconnect.
The design archive is not in a clean state resulting in a number of unreferenced IPs inside the bd directory. 
To work around the issue you can delete the directory below and then rebuild everything using the provided script launch_run.sh.

This will give you a clean bd design.
A request has been filed to fix this issue in a future release.
