Error "could not read design database"


XEMAKE fails, and indicates that it could not find the files necessary
for MAKEPRG (the .vmh file):

[Error] Can not read design database 'design'. Make sure you have run
XEMAKE, FITEQN or FITNET. Also verify that this file has read access.
Otherwise, use another design database.


Errors during FITNET do not always cause XEMAKE to halt automatically.
MAKEPRG will be run subsequently and will also generate errors; however,
the MAKEPRG errors will scroll away the FITNET errors. This can create the
impression that the MAKEPRG error is the original problem.

Check FITNET for errors if this occurs.
