Error creating IP directory, probably because of invalid windows folder

Jump to solution

 

Hi all,

 

after doing just one of the first steps of the first tutorial for my zynq eval board - I invoked a zynq processing system ip core - I already got an error message:

 

[IP_Flow 19-1671] Failed to create IP instance 'aximm_temp'. Error creating IP directory 'c:/Users/franl/AppData/Roaming/Xilinx/Vivado/.Xil/Vivado-5680-franl-??/coregen/aximm_temp'.

 

Beware the two question marks in the path name. Unfortunately I haven't found anything similar on the internet or in a forum. Neither did I find a way to get rid of the question marks. Has anybody a solution for that?

 

Best regards, Frank

Re: Error creating IP directory, probably because of invalid windows folder

Hi everybody,

 

finally I've solved the problem: Xilinx seems to create a temp file folder that contains the name of the computer. The name of my computer contains latin and cyrillic characters: frank-пк. Vivado replaced the cyrillic characters with questionmarks: frank-?? and tries to create a folder with that name, which of course is impossible on windows machines. After changing the name of my computer to "frank" everything was ok.

 

Thanks anyways for the help!

 

Best regards,

 

    Frank

Hi,
The folder Vivado-5680-franl- is user created or tool crated?
Check if you have any blank spaces in the folder name. Also try reducing the path length.
Thanks,Vijay

Thanks for the link, but my problem is different. Vivado puts every new IP core into a directory that contains the folder "franl-??". franl is my user name, but for some reason Vivado appends two question marks. That makes the folder of course invalid, at least in windows

is there any chance your name has some non-ascii characters in it? or your OS is not using the english locale?

Hi @bengl76

 

Try changing the temporary directory location. Open command prompt, source vivado environment and run the below command to invoke vivado.

 

vivado -tempDir <location>

 

Thanks,

Deepika.

Hi,

 

that might be the problem: my system language is Russian. I already changed the locale tu us English, but that doesn't seem to be enough.
