2013.1 - Vivado Timing - report_timing causes Vivado to crash


When I open my synthesized design and run a standard report_timing command:

report_timing -delay_type min_max -max_paths 10 -sort_by group -input_pins -name timing_1

The following crash occurs:

# An unexpected error has occurred (11)
<stack details>


This crash was caused by a set_input_delay constraint without an associated clock on an I/O port combined with a max_delay constraint on the same port. If a clock is not specified in a set_input_delay constraint, the tools are generally able to find the right clock and do this for you, but when there is a max_delay constraint on the same port, this causes a crash.

The crash is targeted to be resolved in the 2013.2 release. In the meantime, the workaround for this is to create a virtual clock to associate with the set_input_delay constraint.
