6.1i ISE - Project Navigator issues a "coregen_lock file found" error message when I create a new project

Description

Keywords: coregen_lock, COREGen, ProjNav, new project, empty

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I select File -> New Project, and browse to or type in a new folder location. After completing the steps for the New Project Wizard, the following message appears in the transcript window:

"ERROR: coregen_lock file found in project directory. An instance of COREGen may already be running that needs to be closed first."

Solution

If you closed and then reopen the project again, no "coregen_lock" ERROR messages will appear.

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.
