ChipScope Pro - When running Translate, I receive the error: "ERROR:XdmHelpers:682 - Second definition of specification..."


When running Translate with a ChipScope core inserted in the design, it fails with a series of error messages that begin with: 


"ERROR:XdmHelpers:682 - Second definition of specification... "


This error is caused when a ChipScope Pro core has been instantiated into the design, and also added at some point using the Core Inserter flow. If this is done within the same project directory, some of the files created by the Inserter Flow remain in the project directory and cause a conflict with the Instantiation Flow. 


To correct this, first try "Project Cleanup" in Project Navigator by going to the Project menu and selecting "Cleanup Project Files." In some cases, you might need to create a new Project and copy your design files (only) to the new directory.
