error happened during synthesizing example project bft of Vivado

Jump to solution

Hi, experts in the board:

 

I am learing the Vivado design process and trying the example project bft.

During the synthesis it gives the error message:

[Common 17-180] Spawn failed: No such file or directory.

And stopped there.

 

I didn't modify any of the source code, and just follow the procedures in this tutorial file:

ug888-vivado-design-flows-overview-tutorial.pdf. ( Project mode )

 

I also tried to open the example project from the start up page of Vivado and then Save it As another project.

Then synthesize, and it has the same error.

 

Any one know why and could you please tell me?

 

The OS is win7 pro, with Vivado Design Version, ISE 14.2 Embbed Edition.

 

Thanks,

Abraham

Now we got the problem solved.

 

The reason we finally found is:

The Vivado is running in the Sandbox of Comodo, which causes the abnormal functionality.

After I disabled the sandbox everything goes fine.

 

Thanks for the help of Debraj from Xilinx !

ll,

 

Vivado is 2012.2, ISE is 14.2:  so which is it you are asking about?

 

If the example is for Vivado 2012.2, I suspect it won't run at all in ISE 14.2.....

 

The reverse is also true.

 

Perhaps the confusion is that there are release DVD's with both software versions on them.

 

Depending on which one you start up, each will require its own example designs.  Do not mix them (and expect to stay sane).

Thanks, Austin !

Sorry for the confusion.

The example bft project is for Vivado 2012.2.

And I tried it in Vivado.

I put the info about the ISE 14.2 there, just because not sure whether it may cause anyinterference with Vivado.

I installed both but only tried the turorial with Vivado.

Are there any other critical warning or error messages before common 17-180?

Hi, Kpatel:

 

Here is some more info.

I captured it from the TCL console.

Actually I found right after I saved the example project as a new one,

and then run simulation, the first time it will give error info.

I have to run it the second time to get it through.

Please see in picture 1.

 

And after that, I run the "Open Elabrated Design", this step has no problem.

 

Then I click the "Run Synthesis", it gives the ERROR: [Common 17-180] Spawn failed: No such file or directory.

Even I tried the second time it's still the same.

Please see picture 2 followed.

 

Thanks for your attention,

Abraham

This looks like a File I/O issue.  Do you see this if your project is on the C:?  What is the E:?  Network location?  External hard-drive?  Other?  I'd recommend a WebCase if investigating the File I/O does not help.

kpatel:

 

The partition E is where the ISE and Vivado installed.

It's in the same disk as the OS partition C.

After seeing your message, I also tried to save the project to C:.

But it still has the same issue.

 

Also I found this warning message when I opened Vivado:

WARNING: [Vivado 15-2] No 'Implementation' license found.

Please see as the picture shown below.

I am using full ISE Embbed Edition license, don't know why it gives this warning.

 

Also when I tried to use the TCL command mode to do synthesis,

I got warning and error about license too.

Please see attached next picture.

 

Please give me your opinion.

Thanks.

OK, now it looks like we're getting into a license issue.  I'd contact Technical Support.  Note that WebPACK configuration does not support Vivado in 2012.2.

Hi, Kpatel:

 

Yes, indeed the license issue info reminded me.

I realized that I attached the license to a FLEXid dongle.

But I haven't installed the driver for it yet.

So now the license issue is gone.

 

But the ERROR: [Common 17-180] Spawn failed: No such file or directory

and the ERROR when doing the first simulation as stated before,

both phenomena are still there.

 

Do you have any further idea how it is?

Sorry, I do not.  Please open a WebCase for further investigation.

Ok, then I'll try WebCase. Never use it before. But it's good to try. Thanks for your efforts to help !
