2014.2 Vivado - Export_hardware in non-project mode results in "No open project. Please use Save Project As ..." error

Description

If I am working in non-project mode, the following error occurs when I attempt to export the hardware of a Zynq IPI design to SDK :


No open project. Please use Save Project As to save your work and re-do this operation.

 

After generating the bitstream, I want to export the necessary files (systm.xml, ps7_init_tcl) for the software developers to SDK. 


How can this be done (what is the recommended solution)?

Solution

This issue can be worked around in either of the following ways:

  • Do a temporary save of the project (project_save_as in Tcl) before executing the export_hardware command.
  • Use the write_hwdef Tcl command from the Tcl Console.

This issue is fixed in Vivado 2014.3.
