2014.2 Vivado - Tcl App Store: New app/company name not visible unless the catalog XML is updated


When creating a new app or new company name, the catalog_xxxx.xml file must be updated.

If this is not done the new app or company will not be visible in the GUI or from the command line.

For example the following will result in an error:
vivado% tclapp::debug::install fooutils

ERROR: [Common 17-653] Could not find tclapp fooutils


The issue is fixed in Vivado 2014.3.


1. Exit Vivado and add the following section in XilinxTclStore/catalog/catalog_2014.1.xml

<company>company name</company>
<summary>example myapp</summary>

2. Start Vivado in TCL mode.

3.Type the following:

Vivado% tclapp::debug::install fooutils

4. The following messages should appear which confirms that the app is installed properly.

INFO: [Common 17-641] Writing catalog '/home/dpefour/.Xilinx/Vivado/2014.1/XilinxTclStore/catalog/catalog_2014.1.xml'
INFO: [Common 17-660] Loading tclapp 'fooutils' into namespace {xilinx}
