3.1/3.2 EDK - XST reports an error if the IP license is set up incorrectly: "make: *** [implementation/system.ngc] Error 1"


Keywords: XST, XPS, PlatGen, EDK

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If the licenses for the IP cores are incorrectly set up, the build netlist function of XPS fails. XST reports the following warnings/errors:

"WARNING:Portability:111 - Message file "coreutil.msg" wasn't found.
WARNING:coreutil - # WARNING XLPP: Core <opb_uart16550_v1_00_c> is unlicensed.
WARNING:Portability:111 - Message file "coreutil.msg" wasn't found.
WARNING:coreutil - # WARNING XLPP: Core <opb_uart16550_v1_00_c> is unlicensed."

These messages are easily lost in the large amount of XST output text. Also, these messages are listed as warnings instead of errors and XST still runs for several minutes like normal. Once XST finishes, XPS reports the following:

"Platform Building failed
make: *** [implementation/system.ngc] Error 1
