In Vivado 2014.x, I have a Block Design which I am trying to package using the "Package Block Design" feature in the GUI.
However, when I run this command the GUI appears to hang and the right click menu from the Block Design remains on screen.
Is this a known issue and how can I work around it?
This is a known issue.
The GUI has not hung or frozen but is actually still processing events in the background.
If left for long enough the packager will complete.
However, in some cases this can take hours.
To work around the issue, it is recommended to package the block design using a script in batch mode.
For example:If you need to modify the taxonomy or the category for the IP when added to an IP Catalog, the following commands can also be used:
This issue is fixed in Vivado 2014.3.
