Error (21102): WYSIWYG primitive "<ROM instance>" cannot use Memory Initialization File in a HardCopy device in a non-ROM operation mode

Environment

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description

You may see this error in the Quartus® II software when compiling a HardCopy® revision containing ROMs. This error may occur when both of the following conditions are true:

  • The FPGA version of the design contains a ROM which has the option Allow In-System Memory Content Editor to capture and update content independently of the system clock turned on in the MegaWizard™ Plug-In Manager.
  • The FPGA version of the design is compiled and the database is used to create the HardCopy revision.
Resolution

To avoid this error, turn off the option Allow In-System Memory Content Editor to capture and update content independently of the system clock in the MegaWizard Plug-In Manager for the FPGA version of the ROM. Then recompile the FPGA design and regenerate the HardCopy revision.
