ModelSim Xilinx Edition (MXE) - "Submit License Request" shortcut does not work with Mozilla-based browsers

Description

Keywords: Firefox, Firebird, Netscape, 1.x, 7.x, XP, 2K

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After I install ModelSim Xilinx Edition II on a Windows machine, a shortcut is installed in the Program Group that should open the default Web browser, and then display an online license request. This shortcut does not open Mozilla-based browsers such as Mozilla, Firebird, Firefox, Netscape 7.x, etc.

Solution

The shortcut will work with Microsoft Internet Explorer.

To work around this issue, you can use one of the following options:
- Make IE the default browser, which will allow the shortcut to work.
- Copy and paste the URL section of the shortcut into an already open browser.
- Open the file "lic_request.txt" (with a text editor) in the MXE install directory and follow the instructions provided in this file.

This problem will be addressed in a future release of the MXE software.
