4.1i ISE - An attempt to synthesize HDL code causes Project Navigator to hang


Keywords: hang, XIL_GUI_INSTANCECHECK, environment, window

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Project Navigator 4.1i will load project files and allow me to create and edit source code; however, when I attempt to synthesize, Project Navigator hangs.


This situation will exist if you have the XIL_GUI_INSTANCECHECK variable set to 0 in your environment. To avoid the problem, set the variable to 1, or delete it altogether.

NOTE: This variable exists to allow multiple copies of Design Manager to run at the same time.
