4.1i ISE Project Navigator - Enabling local feedback results in an error that includes "cpldfit.tcl - Done: failed with exit code: 65535."

Description

Keywords: 4.1i, Project Navigator, CPLDFit, TCL, feedback, 65535, localfbk

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
For the XC9500 flow (only), the "Pin Feedback" and "Local Macrocell Feedback" options are set as "Template-Controlled" by default. However, if I click on these settings, I am also able to select "On" or "Off" for each setting.

If I set either setting to "On", Project Navigator stops running and reports a TCL error similar to the following:

"Starting: 'exewrap -mode pipe -tapkeep -tcl -command _cpldfit.tcl'

Creating TCL Process
The TCL interpreter reported the following error when executing the script _cpldfit.tcl
invalid command name "else"
while executing
"else { puts $_rspFileHandle "-localfbk" }"
(file "_cpldfit.tcl" line 14)Done: failed with exit code: 65535."

Solution

This problem is fixed in the latest 4.1i Service Pack, available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.1i Service Pack 3.
