2014.3 Vivado IP Flows - Packaging IP over network leads to: [Common 17-53] User Exception: Invalid Component object reference "".


I am running Vivado on a Windows network and the following message is reported when packaging a design that opens an edit_ip_project:

[Common 17-53] User Exception: Invalid Component object reference "<component_xml_path>". Ensure this is the file name of a loaded file object, or valid VLNV, or a valid TCL ID.

The edit_ip_project and the original project are still functioning and there does not seem to be an issue with either. 

This seems to be a timing issue after the following command is executed in the original project:

  1. Tools->Create and package IP
  2. Select "package your current project" -> Next
  3. Select remote location for IP -> Next -> Finish


This issue occurs only on Windows Networks where the Path contains upper case characters.

The issue has been fixed in Vivado 2014.4.

In Vivado 2014.3 you can close the error window to proceed.
