Synthesis & CSim hangs on Vitis HLS GUI


Hi. This is a follow-up question to:
I am using Vitis HLS GUI on AWS M5.xlarge instance with FPGA Developer AMI 1.10.0
I am currently in Los Angeles and logging into N. California AWS server, so latency shouldn't be too bad.

I create a simple project with source files which I know synthesized correctly in my own servers with Vitis HLS 2020.2.
But when I pressed "Synthesis" (the green arrow button) or when I pressed CSim (in the pull-down menu),
Vitis HLS simply hangs and does not respond.
No error message - simply hangs. The program itself is not dead - it does accept other commands, such as switching to Debug tab.

Could anyone help me solve this problem?

Hi Young,

I'll check with Xilinx on this. Are there any logs that you can share?

Thanks. Actually, I decided to use NICE DCV as you suggested, and that flow does not have this problem. Thanks for clarifying that it is free of use :)
