6.1i ISE - Migrating a project from 5.2i or earlier to 6.1i causes: "ERROR:Guide:251 - The design guide file, <project directory name>\guide.ncd, is already in the ISE 6.Xi format, no conversion necessary."

Description

Keywords: guide, PAR, migration, conversion, convert, format

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I open a project created in the 5.2i or earlier software in ISE 6.1i, a message asks if I would like to migrate the project to the 6.1i format. If I select "Yes", and if the project contains and uses an NCD file as a guide file, the project migration script attempts to convert the guide file to the 6.1i format as well.

When the attempt to convert a guide file is made, PAR reports the following error:

"ERROR:Guide:251 - The design guide file, C:\bugs\174253\test9\guide.ncd, is already in the ISE 6.Xi format, no conversion necessary."

Solution

This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.1i Service Pack, available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 6.1i Service Pack 1.
