5.2i ISE - Project Navigator conflicts with ClearCase 2002 on a WindowsXP OS ("FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:winnapp.c:583:$Revision")


Keywords: GUI, 5.2.02, crash, install

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When ISE 5.2i and ClearCase 2002 are both installed on my WindowsXP operating system, Project Navigator unexpectedly shuts down when I open a project or file, or if I use the GUI file browser.

In some cases, the following error occurs before Project Manager closes:

"FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:winnapp.c:583:$Revision - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover....."


This problem occurs only with ISE 5.2i (including service packs) and ClearCase 2002. Previous versions of ClearCase do not exhibit any conflict with ISE 5.2i or other ISE software versions. This problem occurs only on WindowsXP operating systems; Xilinx command line executables work normally, and Project Navigator works correctly if ClearCase 2002 is de-activated or un-installed.

If both ClearCase 2002 and ISE 5.2i must be used on the same WindowsXP system, open Project Navigator by invoking "_pn.exe" instead of "ise.exe". This opens Project Navigator and allows it to function correctly even if ClearCase 2002 is installed and active.

NOTE: "ise.exe" is a shell program that provides the correct environment setup and then calls "_pn.exe".
