2014.1 SysGen - Undefined variable "this" or class "This.GUIClass"

Description

When I open a model and try to customize a Gateway block (or any block), I receive the following error:

Recursion detected in the OpenFcn of 'untitled/Gateway In

Other errors occur as well depending on the block and whether it is a new or existing design.

For example:

Undefined variable "this" or class "this.GUIClass".

The following message was in the Matlab console:

Warning: The following error was caught while executing 'xlSocketServer_impl' class destructor:
Java exception occurred: java.lang.NullPointerExceptionat com.xilinx.sysgen.socketinterface.RawSocketLayer.close(RawSocketLayer.java:133)

What is the cause of these errors?

Solution

This is a known issue discovered in 2014.1(Windows) when the model and Matlab workspace are set to an unmapped network location.

For example:

\\my_server\my_path_to_model\

You can work around the issue by mapping the network location to a drive letter and using it instead.

You could map '\\my_server' in the example above to Z:, and then point the Matlab workspace to the following:

Z:\my_path_to_model\
