I loaded an HDL file into the Hardware Simulator and had an error. I corrected the HDL code in WordPad but when I tried to save it I got a message saying the file is in use by another process and had to close the Hardware Simulator before I could save the HDL file in WordPad. This is really annoying. Is there any way around this?
For some reason, WordPad apparently tries to lock an edited file in a stricter way than most other editors. Switching to another editor (NotePad, WinEdit, Matlab's editor, ...) should solve the problem.
I'm having the same problem using UltraEdit-32 on Windows 2000.
At first I thought I had to close the hdl file in the simulator but I later discovered that all I need to do is click the rewind/reset button. I guess the simulator isn't properly closing the file until the reset.
