10.1.03 CORE Generator - Opening a core customization GUI results in "ERROR: sim:166 - An internal error has occurred. Closing core customization GUI."

Description


When I attempt to create ("customize") some cores, including FIFO Generator 4.4 and Block Memory Generator 2.8, the following error occurs:



"ERROR:sim:166 - An internal error has occurred. Closing core customization GUI. An Error occurred during Customization."

Solution


This issue occurs in ISE 10.1 with service pack 3 (SP3) installed and IP Update 3 not installed. Installing the IP update should resolve the problem.



The IP Update can be downloaded from the Download Center:

In some cases, IP Update 3 does not successfully write to the $XILINX\lib\nt directory. If you have already installed IP Update 3 for ISE 10.1, use "libIp_Xst.dll" in the ISE backup install directory to replace the version in $XILINX\lib\nt.
