*Obsolete* 4.2i iMPACT- The GUI appears to be missing (chip configuration screen cannot be seen)


Keywords: 4.1, ISE, IMPACT, GUI

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After I open iMPACT, the GUI seems disappear. If I double-click the iMPACT icon in the tool bar, nothing happens.


This problem occurs if you minimize iMPACT after it has already been opened, then right-click on iMPACT in the tool bar and select "close".

Follow these steps to work around the problem:

1. Right-click on the iMPACT icon in the tool bar, and select "Maximize".

2. Once iMPACT is open:
- Select File -> Exit
- Click on the "X" in the upper right-hand corner of the iMPACT window

3. Reopen iMPACT

This problem will be fixed in the next major software release.
