13.1 Project Navigator - Selecting new Working Directory causes a Fatal Error


When I open an ISE project with read-only permissions, Project Navigator prompts for a directory path to be used as a Working Directory. However, when I provide a directory name, Project Navigator fails with the following messages.

On Windows:

looking for type: got text/plain
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'xercesc_2_7::IOException'

On Linux:

Qt has caught an exception thrown from an event handler. Throwing
exceptions from an event handler is not supported in Qt. You must
reimplement QApplication::notify() and catch all exceptions there.

FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:Gui_Clip_ApplicationBase.c:379:1.30 - This application
has performed an illegal operation and must be shut down. Process will
terminate. For technical support on this issue, please open a WebCase with
this project attached at http://www.xilinx.com/support.


This happens if the .xise project file is not writable. Project Navigator checks the working directory location and then tries to write the new location to the .xise project file without checking the write permissions of the file.

This issue is resolved in ISE Design Suite 13.2.
