6.1i HDL Bencher - When I run a process dependent upon a TBW file, I am prompted to save the .tbw file even though no changes have been made

Description

Keywords: save, test bench, waveform, TBW, .tbw, project navigator, stimulus

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I run a process dependent upon a TestBench Waveform (TBW) file, I receive the following prompt to save the .tbw file, even though I have made no changes since the last save.

"Do you want to save these files before continuing?"

Solution

The ".tbw" file is updated correctly with timestamp, but this action is not detected by Project Navigator. The safe thing to do is to select "Yes" the first time the message appears. Closing the HDL Bencher GUI will prevent further instances of the dialog window.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.1i Service Pack, available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates
The first service pack containing the fix is 6.1i Service Pack 1.
