When trying to run Vivado Synthesis 2013.2, I get the following error:
This file actually does exist in this directory, but Vivado IDE cannot find it.
This error has been seen in some cases where the project is located on a network drive.
file seems to be created just after the error is issued.
It is possible that the network is not creating the file fast enough, and as a result the file does not exist yet when the tool needs to use it.
A possible work-around is to use the following steps:
The job scripts are no longer created for runs in Vivado 2013.3.
Therefore this type of race condition should be eliminated.
