AR# 60400: 2014.1 Vivado - Write_project_tcl - bad index "4294967296": must be integer?[+-]integer? or end?[+-]integer?
2014.1 Vivado - Write_project_tcl - bad index "4294967296": must be integer?[+-]integer? or end?[+-]integer?
I run write_project_tcl for my project in Vivado 2014.1. After appearing to hang for a long time, it generates the following error message:
write_project_tcl -force wpt_not_imports.tcl ::write_project_tcl: Time (s): cpu = 02:41:50 ; elapsed = 02:41:44 . Memory (MB): peak = 2137.953 ; gain = 0.000 bad index "4294967296": must be integer?[+-]integer? or end?[+-]integer?
This issue is fixed in the Vivado 2014.2 release.
We have also released an update to the Tclstore which can be retrieved in the Vivado 2014.1 installed version.
To update Vivado 2014.1 with this fix:
Open the Tcl Store (Tools->Xilinx TclStore)
(Accept 3rd party agreement if there's a popup)
Click the Refresh button in the lower left of the window to retrieve the latest
catalog. The update button appears next to the Project Utilities app as
in the screenshot below:
Click the Update button. a. This should update the app. b. Close the TclStore GUI and run with the latest changes.
If you do not see an Update button after clicking refresh and you are running on Windows over a proxy, see (Xilinx Answer 60283) for a workaround.
The issue in Vivado 2014.1 is that the path needs to be two levels above the .xpr project in the directory structure when you run write_project_tcl:
Example: A project is located at: /a/b/Level_1/project_dir/project.xpr
The below example will not work:
cd /a/b/Level_1 vivado project_dir/project.xpr write_project_tcl file.tcl
The below example will work:
cd /a/b vivado Level_1/project_dir/project.xpr write_project_tcl file.tcl
As an alternative you can use the -absolute_path switch when calling write_project_tcl
