8.1i ISE - Project Navigator does not show any action in the console window when opening UCF, TBW or CDC source files through the Source window

Description

Keywords: process, running, hang, time, open, launch, test bench, waveform, constraints

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Sources can be opened from the Project Navigator Source window by double-clicking the source or by right-clicking the source and selecting Open. When a UCF, TBW or CDC source file is opened from the Source window, Project Navigator might appear to hang; no messages are output to the console window, and the associated application does not open.

Solution

To open the UCF, TBW or CDC, underlying processes need to be run in order for the source to open up correctly. In ISE 8.1i Early Access, these underlying processes block the output to the console window until they have completed. Depending on the design, these processes might take a relatively long time and give the impression that Project Navigator has hung.
