14.4 ISE, XC6VLH550T. Numerous iterations of trying to include chipscope using the chipscope core inserter. First I was having timing issues including the chipscope ILA, once I solved the timing problems in the HDL I would get a core when I brought up the analyzer but the signals weren't what I had included in the core inserter once I fixed the timing problem. So I did a project clean with the same results. Then deleted the cdc file as well as a project clean. Now I meet timing, all signals routed, all constraints met.....but when I bring up the fpga editor it tells me no cores found. Not seeing any warnings that would indicate a reason for no core. At this point I'm stumped. HELP
I've used chipscope succesfuly before but It's been at least 18 months...so I'm hoping it's something simple I forgot.

Please post the full error/warning message that you are seeing.

Hi @vijayak Thats just it, other than the 0 cores found in chipscope analyzer, and no cores found in the FPGA editor I don't see anything that tells me a problem. I did figure one thing out, I had to shorten the path and path file names and was able to get a core in according to the fpga editor...but CS analyzer still says no cores.

Disregard the path fix. With no change to the HDL, ucf or source files. Sometimes I get CS core in FPGA editor sometimes I don't. If I get a core in the FPGA editor, I may or may not get a core in analyzer. If I get a core in analyzer the signal definitions are wrong. It's like there is a file pointer looking at the wrong file.

Finally got the analyzer to load. Results of the process are random wether it includes a core or not. I have no idea what is going on.
