6.1i ISE - The generation of a simulation model fails, and an error reports "Can't read "p_SimModelRetainHierarchy": no such variable"

Description

Keywords: hierarchy, generate, post fit, simulation, retain, SimModelRetainHierarchy, CPLDFit

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I cannot generate a post-fit simulation model from within Project Navigator; the process results in the following error:

"Started process 'Generate Post-Fit Simulation Model'.

Can't read "p_SimModelRetainHierarchy": no such variable
while executing
"if { !$p_SimModelRetainHierarchy } {
lappend Options "-fn"
}"
(file "C:/Xilinx/projnav/scripts/_ngaTOvxsim_pr.tcl" line 23)"

Solution

Project Navigator does not correctly handle cases in which the "Retain Hierarchy" option under Process -> Properties has been disabled (N/A).

This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.1i Service Pack, available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp
The first service pack containing the fix is 6.1i Service Pack 2.
