1.1 System Generator for DSP - Error when running the "Generate" process: "Error in Jnetlister: There are no child processes to wait for..."

Description

Keywords: SysGen, MATLAB, MathWorks, Simulink, 4.1i

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I have successfully finished simulating my System Generator design in Simulink. When I run the "Generate" process, the following error message appears:

"System Generator ERROR -
A fatal error has occurred. To resolve this error, please consult the Answers Database and other online resources at http://support.xilinx.com"

The following also appears in the MATLAB main command window:

"Error in Jnetlister: There are no child processes to wait for.
???? Error using ==> close
Invalid figure handle.

Error in C:\matlabr12\toolbox\xilinx\sysgen\bin\Sysgen.m
On line 498 ==>

???? Error while evaluating uicontrol Callback."

Solution

This error commonly occurs when users attempt to use System Generator v1.1 with Xilinx 4.1i software. System Generator v1.1 must be used with the Xilinx 3.1i software.

The next version of System Generator (v1.2) will be compatible with the Xilinx 4.1i software.
