When I run implementation on a design with SPI4.2, I receive the following BitGen error:
"ERROR:Bitgen:169 - This design contains one or more evaluation cores for which bitstream generation is not supported."
This error indicates that the SPI4.2 Core was generated with a simulation-only license. These generated SPI4.2 files only allow you to implement your design through the place and route tool, which allows you to generate the back-annotated files for functional or timing simulation. The SPI4.2 files will not allow you to generate a bitstream file for programming a device.
For more information, see the "Obtaining Your License" section of the SPI4.2 User Guide, located in your <spi4.2_comp_name>\doc\ directory.
In order to generate the bitstream and use it on your system, you will need to obtain and install a full-featured license.
