2.2 System Generator for DSP - How do I convert a 4.1i project created by System Generator to the 5.1i software?

Description

General Description: 

How do I convert a 4.1i project created by System Generator to the 5.1i software?

Solution

If a project created by System Generator for DSP v2.2 for the 4.1i ISE software is opened in the 5.1i software, the tools issue the following warning: 

 

"This project was generated by a previous version of project navigator and must be updated to the current format. Once this project has been updated, you will no longer be able to open it in earlier versions of Project Navigator." 

 

You should upgrade the project, archiving the old project if desired. You must also add the UCF file to the project, as the conversion process removes it. This is done via the following steps: 

 

- Go to Project Menu -> Add Sources. 

 

Select the UCF file created by System Generator and allocate it with the top-level VHDL file.  

 

This completes the conversion process. This conversion will not be necessary in System Generator for DSP v2.3, as the tool only supports the 5.1i software.
