8.1i ISE - Project Navigator does not implement the proper source file (the source from root drive is used)

Description


Project Navigator does not implement the proper source file if the source file with the same name also exists in the root directory.



Example



1. I create a project in C:\test_proj.

2. The project contains a source named "test.v" that resides in the "C:\test_proj" directory.

3. Another file named "test.v" resides in the "C:\ directory".

4. When a process is run on the "test.v" file added to the project, "C:\test.v" is used.

Solution


To work around this issue, if possible, avoid storing old copies of source files in your root directory.



If the source file on the root drive is desired as a "master" copy, you might consider using Project -> Add Source and select the "master" source, instead of making a copy in the project directory.
