10.1sp3 Xplorer - When Xplorer is run from the Project Navigator GUI, it gives ERROR:invalid command name "getVersion"


When Xplorer is run from the Project Navigator GUI, it errors out with the following message

ERROR invalid command name "getVersion"

This is a known issue when Xplorer is run from 10.1 sp3 Project Navigator


To work around the issue, edit the xplorer-lib.tcl script in the ISE install directory:





1. Comment out line number 1704 set VERSION [getVersion $VERSION] by putting a # at the start of the line.

2. Add line set VERSION "10.1.03+ (DEFAULT)"

Save the script and re-run Xplorer from the GUI.

Run Xplorer from the command line. To get more information on how to run Xplorer from the command line, please refer to the Development Systems Reference guide at:
