4.1i sp3 ISE - After Service Pack 3 is installed, I cannot launch the Synplify process from Project Navigator


Keywords: ISE, Project Navigator, ProjNav, Synplify, Synplify Pro, GUI

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
After I install Service Pack 3, the processes that launch the Synplify or Synplify Pro GUI in Project Navigator ES3 fail to start. I can see the application begin to start up (the GUI flashes for a moment), but it then disappears. (It is not in the task bar, but I can see the process running in the "Process" tab of my task manager.)

(Synplify will run correctly in stand-alone mode.)


A patch that will fix this issue is located at:

The zip file contains five .fdk files that must be placed in the $XILINX\data directory (replacing the existing files).
This patch should only be used for ISE 4.1i with Service Pack 3 (4.1.03i) on PC Windows based platforms.

For more information, please also see (Xilinx Answer 13409) and (Xilinx Answer 13411).

This issue will be fixed in the 4.2i software release that is scheduled for the end of February, 2002.
