2.1i COREGEN: FOUNDATION: ERROR: \path\<project_name>.pdf does not exist or is not readable

Description

Keywords: Coregen, starting, startup, project path, system options, doesn't exist

Urgency: standard

General Description:
When trying to start Coregen from the Foundation Project manager on a PC,
the following message occurs.

Error: File C:\<project path>\<project_name>.pdf doesn't exist
Set the project Path in System Options ...

Solution

1

The .pdf file referenced in the message is the Foundation Project Description
File.

Check to see if long filenames have been used in either the .pdf filename or the directory structure.
If the 8 character limit is broken, the CORE Generator will fail to start.

Ensure that both directory filenames are no longer than 8 characters

You may also get this error if you specify "Schematic" and "Foundation" for
under the "Project"-> "Design Flow" option, but do not point the CORE
Generator to a valid Foundation project directory.
