5.1i ISE - The Project Navigator GUI does not launch on a Solaris machine, reporting an "Arithmetic Exception" error


Keywords: Solaris, 5.1i, Arithmetic, Exception, Project, Navigator, ISE, UNIX

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I type "ise" to open ISE 5.1i on a Solaris system, the GUI fails to launch and reports an "Arithmetic Exception" error.


This problem occurs when ISE and /usr/dt/bin/sdtaudiocontrol are used from the same shell.

Project Navigator will not run if /usr/dt/bin/sdtaudiocontrol is activated first, although implementation tools such as MAP and PAR will run from command line.

To work around this problem, launch ISE first (ise &<ENTER>), then run /usr/dt/bin/sdtaudiocontrol &<ENTER>.

After sdtaudiocontrol has been run once in a login session, you must exit the current login session before launching ISE again. (This is true even if you exit sdtaudiocontrol.)
