2012.4 Vivado IP Flows - "ERROR: [Common 17-49]" when opening IP Example Design


When opening an IP core example project on windows platforms, the tools can issue the following error message:

ERROR: [Common 17-49] Internal Data Exception: ProcHandler::InvalidParam
ERROR: [Common 17-69] Command failed: Open IP Example Project failed with errors


This error is caused by the Example Project working directory path length being too long.

To work around this issue reduce the path length of the Example Project working directory.
A check was added to Vivado 2013.1 to detect this situation and provide a message about how to handle it.
