    Bizarre error with cross-reference in DXDesigner

    mathieu.lafrance

      Hi,

       

      I'm getting the following error when trying to cross-reference my design:

       

      Started scout.exe "RPC_TOP" -icdbdir  "O:\MentorExpedition\Projects\CE\868809\868809F1.1\database" -icdbsnapshot "DxD"  -common_prop_file  "O:/MentorExpedition/Projects/CE/868812/868812F1.1/MDA_Library_Dec2012_RPC_WG/CentLib.prp"  -textsize 254000 -new_attr_vis 1

      scout: Note 115: Using configuration file  O:\MentorExpedition\Projects\CE\868809\868809F1.1\scout.ini.

       

      scout: Warning 162: Maximum Xref items  exceeded.

       

       

      scout: Note 137: Finished with 0 error(s), 34 warning(s),  1 note(s).

      Finished  scout.exe

       

       

      I also cannot see where the warnings and the notes are listed. I do not have a "scout" output window ! I am wondering if scout has stopped cross referencing because there's too many items.

       

      Version is EE7.9.4. This is a hierarchical deisgn, if that helps. Thanks

          Answer:

           

          You need to comment the "suppress" command in scout.ini to see the warning and error messages

           

          The comment symbol is the pipe "|"

           

          Scout.ini should look like this :

           

          | ---------------------------------------------------------------------

          | The SUPPRESS command can be used to suppress message reports by

          | either message type (status, note, warning, error) or by message number.

          |

          | suppress                status

          |

          | Note: Do not suppress message type 'note' or message number '1030' if

          | you are using the 'scout51' script.

          |

          |suppress 136   | untagged dangling net messages
