11.4 EDK - SDK failed to generate source files

Description

I am using SDK to create a sample software project, such as the Hello World Software project, when I click on Finish after setting all the software platform project and build configuration settings, the following error occurs:

"Failed to generate source files for project Hello World"

The console only reports the following:

"Full rebuild of configuration Debug for project helloworld"

When I click OK, I am returnedto SDK with nofiles generated for the software project.

How can I resolve this error?

Solution

This is a known issue which is resolved in the upcoming release of SDK in ISE Design Suite 12 (due out May 2010).

This problem occurs when SDK is run from a location other than the installation directory.For example, the issue can occur if you run the tools from your home directory.

To work around the issue, perform the following:

  1. Open a command prompt/terminal window.
  2. Change directory (cd) to the SDK installation directory (i.e., < ISE Design Suite Main installation directory >/SDK/bint/nt).
  3. Type "xps_sdk", then enter.
