2018.1 Vivado IP Flows - Export_simulation only updates compile scripts not source files in ip and ipstatic dirctory

Description

When a project is updated from Vivado 2017.3 to Vivado 2017.4, the ipstatic folder is not being updated during the export_simulation phase of "Generate Output Products".

If the folder is deleted, then it is created correctly when Generate Output Products is run again.

To recreate this behavior:

  1. Check the time stamp on the ipstatic folder
  2. Right click on the IP and Generate Output Products
  3. Confirm that the ipstatic folder the timestamp has not changed
  4. Delete the folder and Generate Output Products again
  5. Confirm that this time the folder has been updated correctly

Solution

To work around this issue, remove the ipstatic directory and re-run Generate Output Products.

This is scheduled to be fixed in Vivado 2018.2.
