9.1i CORE Generator - "ERROR:sim:4 - Could not create clean working directory <project_path>\tmp\_cg."

Description

Keywords: network, customization, open, generate, portability, operation system

When I select a core and try to open the customization GUI or regenerate the core, the following error occurs:

"ERROR:sim:4 - Could not create clean working directory <Project_directory>\tmp\_cg."

Solution

This will happen if the temporary directory setting is set to a location that is unavailable. For example, a project is created on a UNIX-based computer and then moved to a computer with Windows OS. The Temporary Directory value will be set to a UNIX path. This can also happen if the Temporary Directory points to a mapped drive that is no longer valid.

To fix this problem, select Project ->Project Options and click the Advanced tab and type in (or browse to) a new directory location for the Temporary Directory value.
