AR# 4359: F1.4 Project Manager: Netlist creation failed. Try exporting netlist to edif in schematic editor.
F1.4 Project Manager: Netlist creation failed. Try exporting netlist to edif in schematic editor.
KEYWORDS: Foundation, netlist, export, edn, edf
On hitting the M1 button in the Foundation Project Manager, in order to get to the Design Manager, the following error message appears:
PM: netlist creation failed try exporting netlist to edif in schematic editor
This can happen when the timestamp on the newly created EDN file is newer than the time on the PC clock.
The error message listed above will also occur if the design files are on a (NT) server on which the time is in advance of the local PC on which Foundation is loaded.
Time on server - 10:15 Time on local pc - 10:05
Change the times to be the same.
If you are saving files to a network server, check that its clock holds the correct time. Doing so will mean that the files created will be given the correct timestamp and the Project Manager will not see a conflict and will not issue the error message.
