I am using IC613 to create a layout and every time I try to create an instance, it says - "LE-107016 Cannot create a recursive instance placement" even though its not recursive - I created a new library and new cell view. I then click "OK" and continue to create my instance, but as soon as I place the instance, IC crashes. It does not say anything about it being a segmentation fault or anything. It creates a panic log though. I am using the latest version of OA too. This problem is there even if I try to create instance in an already existing library - the only difference being - it does not say anything about creating recursive instance. It just crashes when I place the instance.
Any suggestions on why this happens and any possible solutions will be highly appreciated.
Are you sure you're not placing an instance within itself? The only reports I've ever seen of this have been when people try to place an instance of libA/cellA/viewA into libA/cellA/viewA.
Even when I try that in 126.96.36.1990.12b (the latest ISR), it doesn't crash - just doesn't let me do it.
So if you're really still seeing this, you should contact Cadence customer support.
