Xilinx ISE 13.1 fatal crash bug

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

I just finished isolating a bug that causes Xilinx ISE project navigator to immediately crash to desktop on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

 

I was typing up some verilog code when I errantly copy-pasted something to where it should not have been and clicked save, causing an immediate crash to desktop (it throws up a "_pn.exe stopped working" error and crashes).  If I attempted to restart the project navigator (in 32-bit or 64-bit mode), it crashed immediately.

 

After some trial-and-error I determined that the only way to get back in was to either A) remove (or comment out) the line of code I accidentally pasted, or B) load a different project from windows explorer.

 

I am able to reproduce this problem with a 100% success rate by using an external text editor to turn the errant code into a comment, opening the project, uncommenting the code, and clicking save.

 

I'll obviously be more careful to make any mistakes when typing out code from now on, but I thought that Xilinx might want to take a look at their parser to make it a little more forgiving.  Attached please find a .zip archive of my project (18kB), which I was able to cut down to just enough code to reproduce the problem (the project I'm uploading is completely broken and serves only to reproduce the problem).  Simply extract the archive, load the 'error.xise' project, navigate to the 'clock_manager' source file, uncomment line 16 and click save.

 

If any further details are needed from me in order to help reproduce the problem on your system please reply.

You should open a webcase for this bug report.  The webcase support tech should generate the engineering change request.

 

Thanks for testing and documenting the problem so thoroughly, and letting us know!
