Description


ISE 9.2i creates the following error when attempting to view the Fitter Report for a CPLD design.



ERROR:ProjectMgmt - TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'An exception took place while calling GuiI::TclWrapIEmbedBrowser::BrowseUrlSameWindow '.

Tcl_ErrnoId: unknown error

Tcl_ErrnoMsg: No error

(procedure "dpm_fitterViewReport" line 58)

invoked from within

Solution


The above error might happen randomly if:



1. 'CPLD reports' is set to HTML (Edit -> Preferences -> ISE General) and;

2. HTML Browser is set to External/System (Edit -> Preferences -> HTML Browser) and;

3. The current version of JAVA used by your computer system is not JAVA 5 (v1.5.x). To determine the current system version of JAVA used, open a command window and type 'java -version'.



ISE 9.2i is tested with JAVA 5. Xilinx programs which require JAVA access the JAVA runtime environment (JRE) installed with the ISE software (%XILINX%\java). However, in the above situation, the external browser is used and this browser simply uses the system environment PATH to locate the JRE.



To avoid this problem, change any one of the three variables listed above. There are two work arounds and one solution.



Work-around 1: Change Fitter Report to Text (ASCII)

1. Open preferences (Edit -> Preferences...).

2. Click on "ISE General" as the Category.

3. A Group Box labeled "CPLD reports" will show two options: "HTML" and "Text".

4. Click "Text".

5. This will change the fitter report to Text (ASCII).



Work-around 2: Use the Project Navigator internal browser

1. Open preferences (Edit -> Preferences...).

2. Click on "HTML Browser" as the Category.

3. A Group Box labeled "HTML Browser" will show two options: "Embedded" and "External/System".

4. Click "Embedded".

5. This will have an internal browser show the fitter report.



Work-around 3: Change the version of JAVA use by the system to JAVA 5.

This can be done by downloading JAVA 5 (from www.sun.com) and installing it on your computer, or by changing the PATH

environment variable to point to the JRE installed with ISE.

Example:

set PATH=%XILINX%\java\nt\jre\bin;%PATH%

To change environment variables, refer to (Xilinx Answer 11630).

NOTE: Changing the system version of JAVA might have adverse effects on other applications which require a specific version of JAVA.
