Vivado project creation or IP Core generation fails with "Project name is illegal" error
15 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to generate HDL code for my model and compile it, or generate an IP core from it using HDL Workflow Advisor. But in either step 4.1. "Create Project" or step 3.2. "Generate RTL Code and IP Core", I encounter the following error:
ERROR: [ProjectBase 2-104] Project name 'C:/work(2022)/hdl_prj/vivado_prj/symmetric_fir_vivado.xpr' is illegal.
This error is caused by unsupported characters in the project path. In the above example, the parentheses () are invalid characters.
See Appendix B of the Vivado Users Guide for supported characters and Vivado project and file naming conventions. Below is the link for version 2019.2: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2019_1/ug895-vivado-system-level-design-entry.pdf
Please rename the project folder so that it contains only valid characters.
