How do I resolve this problem?

Solution

Solution 1

This issue is caused by a bad installation of ISE Design Suite 11.x. Reinstalling ISE Design Suite 11.1 and the corresponding 11.x update solves this problem. Make sure the hard disk drive where you install ISE Design Suite 11 has enough free space.

Refer to Xilinx Answer32488 for more information about required disk space for tools installation.

Solution 2

This issue can also occur if IBM Rational ClearCase is used to check in/out ISE installation directories. ClearCase may add folder structures within the /bin and /lib folders within an ISE Design Suite installation which may corrupt the installation. Either do not install ISE Design Suite within a ClearCase folder, or contact ClearCase Support for further support.

ClearCase is not tested or supported with Xilinx ISE tools.
