5.8.3. Troubleshooting IP or Platform Designer System Upgrade

The Upgrade IP Components dialog box reports the version and status of each Intel® FPGA IP core and Platform Designer system following upgrade or migration.
If any upgrade or migration fails, the Upgrade IP Components dialog box provides information to help you resolve any errors.
Note: Do not use spaces in IP variation names or paths.
During automatic or manual upgrade, the Messages window dynamically displays upgrade information for each IP core or Platform Designer system. Use the following information to resolve upgrade errors:
Table 19.  IP Upgrade Error Information
Upgrade IP Components Field Description
Status Displays the "Success" or "Failed" status of each upgrade or migration. Click the status of any upgrade that fails to open the IP Upgrade Report.
Version Dynamically updates the version number when upgrade is successful. The text is red when the IP requires upgrade.
Device Family Dynamically updates to the new device family when migration is successful. The text is red when the IP core requires upgrade.
Auto Upgrade Runs automatic upgrade on all IP cores that support auto upgrade. Also, automatically generates a <Project Directory> /ip_upgrade_port_diff_reports report for IP cores or Platform Designer systems that fail upgrade. Review these reports to determine any port differences between the current and previous IP core version.
Use the following techniques to resolve errors if your IP core or Platform Designer system "Failed" to upgrade versions or migrate to another device. Review and implement the instructions in the Description field, including one or more of the following:
  • If the current version of the software does not support the IP variant, right-click the component and click Remove IP Component from Project. Replace this IP core or Platform Designer system with the one supported in the current version of the software.
  • If the current target device does not support the IP variant, select a supported device family for the project, or replace the IP variant with a suitable replacement that supports your target device.
  • If an upgrade or migration fails, click Failed in the Status field to display and review details of the IP Upgrade Report. Click the Release Notes link for the latest known issues about the IP core. Use this information to determine the nature of the upgrade or migration failure and make corrections before upgrade.
  • Run Auto Upgrade to automatically generate an IP Ports Diff report for each IP core or Platform Designer system that you upgrade. Review the reports to determine any port differences between the current and previous IP core version. Click Upgrade in Editor to make specific port changes and regenerate your IP core or Platform Designer system.
  • If your IP core or Platform Designer system does not support Auto Upgrade, click Upgrade in Editor to resolve errors and regenerate the component in the parameter editor.
