F1.4, F1.5 Project Manager: After unarchiving (restoring) project, design changes are not reflected in the implementation.
Keywords: foundation, archive, restore,
General Description: After archiving a project and then subsequently un-archiving the project, design changes are not relected in the in the new implemetation.
The main cause of this is when the project is unarchived to a different directory, but the original project is still on the system. Once design chages are made the EDN file is correctly updated, however when Design Manager is invoked, it still is looking for the netlist in the original directory location. Since the original project still resides on the machine, the Design Manager opens with the older netlist.
To solve the problem rename the original netlist and re-invoke the Design Manger. A Message Box will appear indicating that it cannot find the input netlist. Select OK and then browse to the NEW version of the netlist in the new directory.
