2013.3 Vivado IP Flows - Manage IP project is opening in read-only mode and cannot be used as a result


When I open my managed IP project the following error is displayed and the project cannot be used.

[Project 1-39] Failed to load run data. Making project read-only to protect unopened run data.

There is no drop down option to "save project as" to make a writeable project.

How can this be fixed?


This issue has been reported to happen occasionally by a small number of Vivado 2013.3 users.

The projects appear to have become corrupted. 

There are two available workarounds:

  •  Rebuild the Manage IP project from the beginning.
  • From the Tcl Console, use the "save_project_as" command:
save_project_as myProject <path_to_original_location>/myProjectDir force

The cause of the projects becoming corrupted is unknown.
