9.1i EDK - "ERROR:Portability:3-This Xilinx application has run out of memory"

Description

When I run a design through XPS, the following error occurs:

"Creating Script File ...

ERROR:Portability:3 - This Xilinx application has run out of memory or has

encountered a memory conflict. Current memory usage is 2094816 kb. Memory

problems may require a simple increase in available system memory, or

possibly a fix to the software or a special workaround. To troubleshoot or

remedy the problem, first: Try increasing your system's RAM. Alternatively,

you may try increasing your system's virtual memory or swap space. If this

does not fix the problem, please try the following: Search the Answers

Database at support.xilinx.com to locate information on this error message.

If neither of the above resources produces an available solution, please use

Web Support to open a case with Xilinx Technical Support off of

support.xilinx.com. As it is likely that this may be an unforeseen problem,

please be prepared to submit relevant design files if necessary. "

Solution

If this error message immediately follows the XFLOW command:

xflow -wd implementation -p xc2vp40ff1152-6 -implement fast_runtime.opt system.ngc

Release 7.1.04i - Xflow H.38

Copyright (c) 1995-2005 Xilinx, Inc. All rights reserved.

xflow.exe -wd implementation -p xc2vp40ff1152-6 -implement fast_runtime.opt

system.ngc

you can work around this by finding the "xflow.his" file and deleting it (this file is located in the implementation directory).
