IP updating bug 2018.3

Jump to solution

I just lost a few hours work on a simple ip because of a really stupid bug in vivado so I felt the need to report it.

I put together the files and wrote test benches, after confiming everything worked I packaged the IP for use in another project. When I loaded it up in the other project I found I'd made a minor error in one of the sensitivity lists and so it wouldn't synthesize. No problem I'll just update the IP and the IP manager will give me an option to update. I fixed the error repackaged the IP, got the update IP option, did so and found... the same error, directing me to the same error in the code. I repackaged it again, (The revision number was incrementing so it should have been updating). This bug was in 2018.3

After a few goes I went so the Update IP funcitonality is buggy (whatever). The synthesis time was like 5 minutes before it threw the error, so I was getting rather frustrated and figured screw it, delete the IP package all together and just repackage the other project from scratch... Selected Delete IP in the IP catalog, confirmed, and... it deleted not just the IP but the associated files as well.

 

So note to everyone, when it says delete the IP it means delete the project associated with the IP not just the packaging of the IP...
