2014.3 Vivado - ERROR: [Common 17-142] Invalid property name 'parent.project_​dir'.

Description

The following Error occurs when I use set_property PARENT.PROJECT_DIR on current_project.

 

set_property PARENT.PROJECT_DIR <DIR path> [current_project]

ERROR: [Common 17-142] Invalid property name 'parent.project_dir'.

This command works in Vivado 2014.2 but fails in Vivado 2014.3.

Solution

To work around this, change the property name from "PARENT.PROJECT_DIR" to "PARENT.PROJECT_PATH" and it will work.
 

This change occurred in Vivado 2014.3.
 
To see all properties associated with the current project, use the below command:
 
report_property [current_project]
