7.1i ISE - Error Navigation finds the correct file but does not navigate to the correct HDL line number


General Description:

When an error or warning message appears in the Project Navigator Console window, a user should be able to double-click the error message and be taken to the line in the HDL file that caused the error. In the 7.1i release, the link on the error message from the console opens the correct file and puts a yellow triangle beside the entity or module name. However, it does not indicate the line where the error is supposed to be.

The same behavior occurs in both VHDL and Verilog sources.


The line number is indicated in the error message. You need to read the line number from the error message and manually navigate to the correct line.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 7.1i Service Pack available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 7.1i Service Pack 2.
