*Obsolete* 3.1i JTAG Programmer - "Error of type 'Improper Entity declaration' encountered while parsing BSDL file at or near '(null)'."

Description

Keywords: JTAG, BSDL, Improper, Entity

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When using a non-Xilinx devices, generic BSDL file may be used. However, when I use a generic BSDL file, the following errors occur:

"ERROR:JTAG - Error of type 'Improper Entity declaration' encountered while parsing BSDL file at or near '(null)'."
"ERROR:JTAG - Error of type 'Check if source file is BSDL' encountered while parsing BSDL file at or near '(null)'."

Solution

To avoid these errors, ensure that any extra lines at the top of the BSDL file are properly commented out.

If any lines exist that are not JTAG-specific BSDL syntax, a "--" character should precede the text.
