AR# 6189: V2.1i COREGEN: List of existing / known projects does not always appear in COREGEN GUI known projects list dropdown
V2.1i COREGEN: List of existing / known projects does not always appear in COREGEN GUI known projects list dropdown
Keywords: coregen, known, project
General Description: The list of existing projects displayed in the COREGEN "Getting Started" GUI may not always display all existing projects.
A listing of existing projects is stored in the known.prj file located in $XILINX/preferences. In some cases, you may need to specify a new project twice to make it appear in the list of known projects in the COREGEN GUI.
Another problem is that known.prj may be emptied when more than one user is accessing the same installation of COREGEN at the same time.
There is no workaround to the first problem of newly created projects not appearing in the known projects dropdown other than respecifying the new project's location in COREGEN.
To minimize the possibility of disappearing project entries in the known projects list from session to session, you can try to keep a backup copy of known.prj under a different name at the end of each COREGEN session. Prior to each COREGEN session, copy this backup file back to the name, "known.prj" prior to starting up COREGEN.
