Vivado IP Integrator - Unable to associate ELF files directly in my IP Integrator design


I generate an IP Integrator design in the Vivado tool with MicroBlaze and AXI block RAMs. 

When I attempt to associate the Memory Test .elf from SDK into the Vivado project using Tools -> Associate ELFs..., I am not able to choose any .elf file as the GUI is blank.

How can I address this issue?


To work around this problem, add the ELF as a design/simulation source into the Vivado project.

Once this is done it will be possible to associate the ELF in the GUI.
