Vivado Sysgen - UG897 Example 2 in Creating Custom Compilation Targets Chapter is producing an error when trying to generate the new Zedboard compilation target

Description

I am following the steps in UG897, Creating Custom Compilation Targets Chapter, Example 2.

When I run the following command an error is produced:

>> xilinx.environment.rehashCompilationTarget

Error using xml2struct (line 49)
The file C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2014.2\data\boards\board_parts\zynq\zed\1.0\board.xml could not be found
Error in xilinx_board/load_board_xml (line 14)

Error in xilinx_board/setup_sysgen_token (line 76)

Error in Zedboard/setup_sysgen_token (line 22)
setup_sysgen_token@xilinx_board(obj);

Error in xlCompTgtManager (line 88)
eval(cmd);

Error in xilinx.environment.rehashCompilationTarget (line 402)

Why does this occur?


Solution

This a known issue in the steps for the example. 

The path has changed and so the steps need to be updated. 

A CR has been filed for this to be updated in future documentation.

The command in the documentation needs to change from:

xilinx.environment.addBoard(Zedboard, 'U:\demo','C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2013.4\data\boards\zynq\ZED\revD')

to:
 

xilinx.environment.addBoard(Zedboard, 'U:\demo','C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2013.4\data\boards/board_parts/zynq/zed/1.2/')
