6.1i FPGA Editor - "Error: NCD - A 5.Xi guide file has been identified and must be converted to 6.Xi format"


Keywords: FPGA Editor, NCD, ncd, guide, file, 5.2, 5.1, 6.1

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I try to open a 5.Xi NCD in 6.1i, the following message occurs:

"ERROR: NCD - A 5.Xi guide file has been identified. This must be converted to 6.Xi format to be used as a guide file with this software version."


This error message applies to all NCD files, not just to the guide files. The 5.X NCD file must be converted to 6.Xi format to be used (to view or use as a guide file) with the 6.1i software.

For information on converting your NGD file from the 5.Xi format to 6.Xi format, please consult (Xilinx Answer 16792).
