Running ISE 14.7, Coregen failes

I'm running ISE 14.7 in Ubuntu on a Virtual Machine.

I can implement a design all the way trough, however I can't generate a Coregen Core (clock wizard).


I can fill in the parameters in the clock wizard v3.6, but when generating to core I get:


INFO:HDLCompiler:1061 - Parsing VHDL file "/home/kees/Designs/Counter/counter.vhd" into library work

Wrote CGP file for project 'clkdiv'.

Core Generator create command failed.


I can however add the .xco file found in ipcore_dir/tmp/_cg to the ISE project and it will implement.

I've checked the utilization report and I see the added DCM.


The mentioned ipcore_dit/tmp/_cg directory has the correct rights.

I know Ubuntu is not on the supported OS list in 2013, but does anybody has any clue how to solve it?

Change your regional settings to "English (United States)", reboot PC and then try again.

Explanation: 200,000 means 200 for some regional settings, for English regional settings it means 200k
