Do the Software Engineers even bother testing?

I'm continue to be amazed at just how bad these tools are.  I updated to 11.4 last night and now Check Syntax doesn't work:

 

ERROR:Xst:426 - Illegal command usage : elaborate -ifn S -ifmt S -project_file S -work_lib S -debug S -vhdl_style S -debug S -lso S

Process "Check Syntax" failed

It's bad enough that things constantly get out of sync and the whole process is convoluted but this is ridiculous.

 

10 hours to download an update that broke my installation.  Stellar.

Open a Web Case :)

 

Anyways, I've never used the ISE tools' check syntax feature. It's a lot easier to call the ModelSim vcom from within emacs.

It certainly feels like they miss a lot. I've had your complaint about the tools for years!! 

 

Bassman is a great contributor. His posts sometimes make me laugh, which is especially nice since I'm generally on this forum in a pissed off mood due to the tools.
