Description

Keywords: FPGA Editor, Probe, Script, .SCR, playback, Error, Portability:90

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Some known problems exist that regard the way FPGA Editor writes out the script file used to save probes. When a corrupt script file is loaded from FPGA Editor (Probes -> Open Probes), the following error message will appear:

Solution

This issue has been fixed in the latest 2.1i Service Pack, available at:

To work around the problem, you can modify the probe.scr file. It should contains a line similar to:

"probe add netname -usedpin P123" or "probe add netname -targetpins -usedpin P123".

Simply edit this text file, and replace this line with:

"probe add netname -targetpins P123"
