2013.3 Vivado - Critical warning [project 1-475] occurs when opening a VC707 project in Vivado 2013.3 that was created in Vivado 2013.2


If I attempt to open a Vivado 2013.2 VC707 project in 2013.3, a critical warning is displayed in the console window similar to the following:

[Project 1-475] Current project option Board - 'xilinx.com:virtex7:vc707:2.0' not found in any board repository. Board related information is not loaded in the current project.
Please run 'get_boards' Tcl command to view list of applicable boards and set appropriate board using Tcl command 'set_property BOARD <appropriate board> [current_project]' or set interactively using GUI from 'Project Settings'.

How can I address this issue?


This occurs because of an issue in Vivado Design Suite 2013.2 where the version for the Virtex-7 VC707 board is incorrectly listed as "2.0".

The incorrect board listing was corrected in Vivado Design Suite 2013.3, however, this will cause the warning above.

To resolve this issue, enter the TCL command below in the TCL console in Vivado:

set_property board "xilinx.com:virtex7:vc707:1.1" [current_project]
