2014.2 Vivado - [Designutils 20-396] Could not read top design file ["./.ngc"] because Can't find ngc2edif executable

Description

I am using a .ngc netlist file as a source on Vivado installed with UltraScale parts only.

The following error is reported during link_design:

[Designutils 20-396] Could not read top design file ["./my_edif_module.ngc"] because Can't find ngc2edif executable


Solution

The ngc2edif executable is part of ids_lite and so is not included in an installation with only UltraScale parts.

NGC
support for UltraScale projects has been deprecated in 2014.3. 

See (Xilinx Answer 62294).
