AR# 485: XNF2WIR ERROR 210 : could not load symbol of type [COULD_NOT_IDENTIFY]
XNF2WIR ERROR 210 : could not load symbol of type [COULD_NOT_IDENTIFY]
XNF2WIR ERROR 210: Could not load symbol $4N660 of type [COULD_NOT_IDENTIFY]. Please ensure the correct libraries for the symbols in the XNF file are specified in the viewdraw.ini file.
It is acceptable to use the XACT 5.0 tool set with old versions of the Viewlogic library (pre-unified library). However, when using old libraries you may experience error 210.
LCA2XNF 5.0.0 writes out an xnf file that is compatible with the unified libraries. The recommended flow for back-annotation includes running XNFBA after LCA2XNF. XNFBA changes the xnf file from the unified library format to the format of the pre-routed xnf file, which is compatible with the version of the libraries that are being used. If XNFBA is skipped, then you will be running XNF2WIR on a unified library compatible xnf file and error 210 will be produced.
The best solution is to run XNFBA, or run XSIMMAKE which automatically runs XNFBA. If you choose to skip XNFBA then you can force LCA2XNF to write out the xnf file in the old library format by using the "-v" switch.
