9.1i Spartan-3E MAP - "INTERNAL ERROR: Metric key "ATTR_RANGE_MULT18X18SIO" not previously registered" when using Multiplier ranges

Description

When using a Multiplier LOC range in the Spartan-3E design, I come across an INTERNAL_ERROR, but the design continues to implement. Following is an example of the internal error: 

 

"INTERNAL_ERROR:MapHelpers:mhrmetriclist.c:136:1.2 - Metric key 

"ATTR_RANGE_MULT18X18SIO" not previously registered. To disable this error 

message set the environment variable XIL_MAP_NO_METRIC_REGISTRY. " 

 

Can this error be ignored?

Solution

This issue has been fixed in the ISE 9.2i release. Meanwhile, the error can be safely ignored and avoided by setting the environment variable: 

 

Windows 

SET XIL_MAP_NO_METRIC_REGISTRY=1 

 

Linux and Solaris 

setenv XIL_MAP_NO_METRIC_REGISTRY 1 

 

For general information about setting ISE environment variables, see (Xilinx Answer 11630).
