9.1i ISE - Project Navigator indicates that PAR fails even though there are no errors in the PAR report

Description

Keywords: status, pads, .csv, implement design, place, route, Place & Route, Place and Route

PAR completes successfully, but Project Navigator indicates that the process failed with the message, "Process "Place & Route" failed" and a red X on the process. This prevents subsequent processes (e.g., Timing Analyzer, Generate Programming File, etc.) from being run.

Solution

There was an issue found where Project Navigator does not handle the PAR -nopad switch correctly and causes a false failure message on PAR.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 9.1i Service Pack available at:
http://www.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp
The first service pack containing the fix is 9.1i Service Pack 2.
