7.1i NGDBuild/Translate- When running Translate on a CPLD design, I receive "ERROR:Portability:90 - Command line error"

Description

Keywords: NGDBuild, invalid, extension

URGENCY: Standard

DESCRIPTION:
When I run Translate on my CPLD design from Project Navigator, the following error occurs.

"ERROR:Portability:90 - Command line error: Argument "Top_Level.edf" has an
invalid extension. The valid extension is ".ngd". If your file name has
more than one "." in it you must explicitly enter the full file name with its
extension."

How can I get around this?

Solution

There is an issue with the way that Project Navigator writes out command lines for CPLD designs with the Macro Search Path set. This will be fixed in a future software release.

To work around this issue, you can delete the Macro Search Path in the Translate Properties and add it to Other Command Line Options with the -sd switch.

For example:
-sd C:\my_project\my_netlists
