PowerPak devkit on Xilinx 11.1

PowerPak devkit on Xilinx 11.1
by on (#48106)
I went to start looking at developing mappers for the PowerPak this week, and had to download Xilinx Webpack 11.1 - they do not offer downloads of older versions. The PowerPak documentation says it was created with Webpack 9.1. I opened up cnrom.ise, and it offered to migrate it to the newer version, which seemingly went fine. However, I couldn't get it to work. Has anyone used PowerPak with a newer version of Xilinx? Any suggestions for how to do so?

When I opened up map03.sch I was faced with the following errors.
Code:
Error : Symbol Not Found: iobuf_lvcmos2
Error : Symbol Not Found: obuft_lvcmos2
Error : Symbol Not Found: ibufg_lvcmos2
Error : Symbol Not Found: bufe8
Error : Symbol Not Found: ibuf_lvcmos2


I next attempted to "Implement top Module" which resulted in hundreds of errors, including these:
Code:

Finally (and most helpfully) I did a "Check Schematic" operation, and got this output. There were 124 of these errors in total. It seems like the iobuf library has changed.

They DO offer the old versions too, but they're pretty well hidden. :)
