7.1i ISE - Project Navigator project file (.ise) is corrupted due to unexpected close


General Description:

The Project Navigator project file (.ise) is corrupted if Project Navigator is unexpectedly shut down due to an application error or system malfunction. Is there any way to recover the project information if Project Navigator is no longer able to open the project file?


Each time a project is opened, a back-up of the project file is created. If the current project file is corrupted, you can restore the project by replacing the project file with the back-up project file as follows:

1. Delete or rename <project_name>.ise.

2. Rename <project_name>.ise_ISE_Backup to <project_name>.ise.
