8.1i XST - "ERROR:HDLParsers:3338 - "<...>" Line 1. Bad file name in project file: Env Variable <...> not defined. "

Description

During synthesis, the following error occurs:

"ERROR:HDLParsers:3338 - "<...>" Line 1. Bad file name in project file: Env Variable <...> not defined."

Solution

The reason is that the project path contains a "$" character, which is read as an environment variable.

To work around this error, remove the "$" character from the path name.

This issue is fixed in ISE 8.1i Service Pack 3.
