Virus causing Synthesis to take forever

Jump to solution

Hi,

  My Windows Defender recently reported:

 

Category: Trojan Downloader

Description: This program is dangerous and downloads other programs.

Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

Items:
file:C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2015.2\scripts\ISEWrap.js

 

  At the same time, my synthesis start to have problem.  It starts but CPU utilization is 0.

 

  What can I do to remove the problem?

 

Regards,

 

Nep

Hi Syed,

  The file was missing from Xilinx\Vivado\2015.2\scripts directory.  So I copied from the same file from another un-infected PC.  I am able to run synthesis successfully now.

@wtneo,

 

I dont think this is a virus file as i can see the same file in my installed directory. 

Can you try adding an exception for this specific file in your antivirus.

Hi Syed,

  Maybe it was infected?  The file is quarantined by anti virus software (no longer in XIlinx folder).  At the same time, synthesis starts to take forever.  I suspect it is a result of being quarantined.

 

  Do you know is the file necessary for synthesis?
