After creating an area group in the top level Floorplan of a modular design and writing out a UCF file, 'INST GRP0 AREA_GROUP = FPAG_GRP0;' appears in the UCF file. This causes an error in NGDBUILD:
ERROR:NgdBuild: 393 - Could not find INST(S) 'GRP0' in design 'top'. INST entry is 'INST GRP0 AREA_GROUP = FPGA_GRP0;').
To workaround this issue, the following line needs to be removed or commented out of the UCF file:
INST GRP0 AREA_GROUP = FPGA_GRP0;
This line can be commented out with the addition of a #:
#INST GRP0 AREA_GROUP = FPGA_GRP0;
