Keywords: 5.1i, 5.2i, project, migrate, migration, library

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After migrating a 5.1i/5.2i Project Navigator project to 6.1i, the following error occurs in XST:

"ERROR:Xst:1864 - Invalid format: work"

Solution

Clean up the project directory:

1. First take a "Snapshot" of the project to preserve (if needed) any implementation files that exist:
a. Go to the "Project" pull-down menu in Project Navigator.
b. Select "Take Snapshot..."

2. Now clean up the project directory:
a. Go to the "Project" pull-down menu in Project Navigator.
b. Select "Cleanup Project Files."

Or, you can delete the "work" directory that XST created:

1. Go to the "H:\<path_to_the_project_directory\xst."
2. Delete the contents of the "work" directory.
