What can I do when I get "par: Failed to dump design to file" message?

The complete message for this error message is:

ERROR - par: Failed to dump design to file <<FILE_PATH>/<FILE_NAME>.ncd>
INTERNAL CODE : ncdesign:basncdesign:2244:2.13

There are multiple causes for this message, but it's not uncommon that this message occurs for the following reasons:


  1. System hard drive is full. Please check to see whether you are not running out of hard drive space. Lattice recommends at least 1GB of hard drive space for a project.

  2. Read/Write permission of your project's working directory is not set correctly. Please check to see whether your project's directory(s) has Write permission.
