I'm trying to create a new Vivado HLS project but when I click finish the application hangs and does not move on from the "Create Project" window.
The project directory name contains a # symbol.
If you have a # symbol in the directory where you are trying to create a project, Vivado HLS 2012.2 will hang.
Please rename the directory so that it does not contain the # symbol.
This issue is resolved in release 2012.4.
The GUI now warns about illegal characters found in the path as shown below.
