8.1i Timing Analyzer - The ISE external browser preference is not used

Description

After setting up an external browser preference to be used by ISE applications, I see that the correct browser is not used by Timing Analyzer.

Solution

To work around the issue:

1. Set the following environment variable:

XIL_GUI_HTML_BROWSER_PATH=1

2. Open Timing Analyzer and under the Help Menu, select Help Topics.

3. Enter the browser command line in the pop-up dialog and then press enter.

4. Quit Timing Analyzer and unset:

XIL_GUI_HTML_BROWSER_PATH

The correct browser should now be opened by Timing Analyzer. This issue is resolved in ISE 8.2i.
