AR# 943: Hardware Debugger 6.0.1: Verification yields "Part type "?" is not defined in 'partlist.xct'
Hardware Debugger 6.0.1: Verification yields "Part type "?" is not defined in 'partlist.xct'
When running Hardware Debugger from a seperate icon or from File Manager, one may see the following message during the verification stage:
Part type "?" is not defined in 'partlist.xct' Ensure that XACT environment is pointing to XACT directory
The device will download fine, only readback/verification is effected. Since it is looking for part "?", so it isn't a bad partlist.xct.
The working directory must not point to the same place the XACT variable points to. Therefore, when specifying the Working Directory when creating an icon for Hardware Debugger, be sure to set it to something other than the XACT directory.
Since File Manager uses the executable's directory as the working directory, running Hardware Debugger (hwdebugr.exe) from File Manager would always cause this error, assuming the executable is located in the XACT directory.
