Install 3.1i Service Pack 8 -- Synopsys Initialization Failed

Description

General Description:

After installing Foundation 3.1i Service Pack 8, I get the following message

every time the project manager tries to load a vhdl file:

Pcm :Cannot initialize Automation - Synopsis initialization failed"

Solution

For both Windows NT/98 the workaround has been to reinstall service pack 7

for all three downloads (Aldec180, FPGA Express, Service pack for xilinx) on

top of Service Pack 8. Then reinstall Service Pack 8 (making sure to install

all three downloads again by checking the boxes for each portion) on top of

Service pack 7.
