"Xelab.exe Has Stopped Working" Error Using the CLIP Wizard in LabVIEW FPGA

Issue Details

I am running the Component-Level IP (CLIP) Wizard on my socketed CLIP. When I run the wizard, it gets to the Check Syntax stage, but then it fails saying:
Xelab.exe has stopped working.


This is a known issue in LabVIEW where the CLIP Wizard crashes if your CLIP contains more than 16 GTX transceivers. To work around this, use the following steps:
  1. Create the CLIP XML without using the CLIP wizard.
  2. Build an .edif file.
  3. Create a top-level VHDL file to wrap the .edif.
  4. Create the CLIP using the VHDL and the .edif.
This should bypass the step that causes the crash so that you can generate your CLIP.

If your CLIP does not have more than 16 GTX transceivers, check the memory usage on your computer and make sure that you are not running out of memory during your CLIP generation.
