Flow Engine 6.0.1: Message "Could not find 2018.spd" during compilation of XC4000 design
Key Workds: 2018, find, spd
General Description: When running Implementation in Flow Engine, the following message is issued in the scroll-by status window:
"Could not find 2018.spd."
However, the XC2018 device is not selected.
This message is harmless, but quite annoying. Design Manager/ Flow Engine will always check for the presence of the XC2018 data files before Translate or Implementation stages are run. (PARTLIST.XCT is the file containing part information that is read in by Design Manager/Flow Engine during Translate and Implementation.)
If the user chose not to install the XC2018 data files during the XACTstep installation procedure, they will see this message scroll by each time they compile their designs.
To avoid seeing this error message, copy all XC2018 related data files in the XACT\DATA directory on the XACTstep 5.2.x/ 6.0.x CD-ROM to the XACT\DATA directory on your local hard drive.
