Unable to build project

Whenever I attempt to build a project that I’m working on, I get the following error, and I’m unsure as to how to fix it:

Bin file (C:\Users\[My Username]\OneDrive\Documents\alchitry\CPU\work\vivado\CPU\CPU.runs\impl_1\au_top_0.bin) could not be found! The build probably failed.

I haven’t tried anything to fix it yet, as since the error is a bit cryptic, I’m not sure what to try.

Let me know if you need any additional information.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

This error simply says, that the *.bin file cannot be found.

In what step does this error occur? building? flashing?
Does it exist anywhere(maybe wrong path or wrong name)?

If it is in the flashing step and there exists nothing I think the bitstream is not built.


I actually figured out what it was, I was doing something odd with clock signals which caused the .bin file not to be created when I built the project. Thanks for the help anyways though!

I restored this thread just in case someone finds it useful.

Basically if you ever see this error, scroll up.

When the build process ends the IDE checks to see if there is a bin file. If it exists it assumes everything built properly and says so. If it doesn’t exist, it gives this error. There should be some info in the long build log generated by the build program.

Ideally, if there are no Lucid errors then everything builds great. This isn’t the case when there is some hardware incompatibility issue (you ran out of resources, you had some constraint issues, clock routing issues).
