7.1i ISE - When I open a 6.xi project in ISE 7.1i, the following message occurs: "File '<source.vhd>' is already in library '<lib_name>', it cannot be added again."

Description

Keywords: VHDL, Library, added, migration, format, conversion, package

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I open a 6.xi ISE project (.npl) file containing user libraries in Project Navigator 7.1i, the following message occurs regarding adding a source file from the user library:

"File 'test.vhd' is already in library 'my_lib', it cannot be added again."

Solution

This message posted during project migration inidicating that a package file is already in the library and cannot be added again can be safely ignored. The file can be seen by expanding the Library Modules tab in the Modules View or by selecting the Library View. The Library Modules section of the Modules view was added in 7.1i to allow users to easily collapse the packages in the hierarchy.
