Solution

This is due an error in the xc2v250.bsd file in the $xilinx\virtex2 directory. The correct version of this file is available in the Virtex-II BSDL file download, which is available on support.xilinx.com.

To resolve this problem:

1. Go to http://www.support.xilinx.com/support/sw_bsdl.htm
2. Download the xc2v.zip file

3. Extract the 2v250.bsd file contained in this download to the $xilinx\virtex2 folder in your Xilinx software installation.

This problem is also fixed in the latest 5.1i Service Pack, available at:

http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates
The first service pack containing the fix is 5.1i Service Pack 3.
