11.4 - XST - ERROR:Xst:2843 Required system file hdc.ini not found

Description

I encountered the following error during synthesis using XST after migrating from ISE software 11.1 to 11.4.

ERROR:Xst:2843 - Required system file hdc.ini not found through XILINX environment variable. Make sure your XILINX environment variable is set properly. Error found during generation.

Solution

This error is caused by hdc.ini under $XILINX\vhdl\xst\nt not found.

To work around it:

1. Check if XILINX environment variable is set properly.
2. Check if hdc.ini exists under $XILINX\vhdl\xst\nt. If it is missing, the issue can be resolved by copying all missing files under $XILINX\vhdl\xst\nt from another machine.
