8.2i Install - When trying to install IP Update #1, error message occurs: "Your current installation contains a Service Pack which is newer..."

Description

Keywords: ISE, CORE Generator, Solaris, Windows, Linux

When I try to install IP Update #1, the following error message occurs:

"Your current installation contains a Service Pack which is newer than the one you are attempting to install. Installing this Service Pack will result in an unstable environment and you will therefore not be allowed to continue.

If you wish to revert to an older Service Pack level you should either run the Service Pack Uninstall (only on PC and if you performed the backup when installing the Service Pack), or reinstall the software and then apply the desired Service Pack."

Solution

This is a known issue with the IP Update installer. To work around this issue, perform these steps:

1. Open the fileset file in your Xilinx install directory.
2. Near the end of the file, remove the line that contains version=8.2.02i.
3. Install the IP Update.
4. At the end of the fileset file, add the version=8.2.02i line back to the file.
