2014.2 Vivado - Tcl command export_simulation gives: ERROR: [Vivado-projutils-9] The specified object could not be found in the project:

Description

I receive the following error when executing the "export_simulation" command:
 

Vivado% export_simulation -simulator ies -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo_1] -directory "." -script_name test_ies.sh
ERROR: [Vivado-projutils-9] The specified object could not be found in the project:char_fifo_1
1

Solution

In Vivado 2014.2, if the project directory contains a space character, the "export_simulation" command will issue the above error.

After removing the space, the command should work without issues.

This issue is fixed in Vivado 2014.3.
