dear forum members,
I wanted to bring your attention to a weird bug, introduced with Vivado 2015.3 or 2015.4.
- Vivado version 2015.4.1
- Operating System Windows 7 x64
- My name has an accented character in it, so my user files are at C:\Users\<My Name>.<My Domain>
- Xilinx is installed at D:\Xilinx
Synthesis works fine, but Vivado crashes without any warning or logging when trying to elaborate the design.
Workaround: I had to change my domain login name to one without accented character and transfer data files.
It has cost me countless hours to find the root cause. Why does your sloppy software continue to waste my time. It should be improving design cycles, not detroying them....
