8.1i ISE - "QWidget: Failed to create window" message is seen followed by flashing of all ISE GUIs

Description

Keywords: Windows, XP, Qt, 2K, 2000, Win2K, WinXP, Error

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The following message is seen in a cmd prompt box when I run ISE on Windows:

"QWidget: Failed to create window"

The message is displayed numerous times in between different error messages.

Solution

This issue is caused by a conflict between the ISE GUI and "wisptis.exe", which is a Microsoft program for Tablet PC handwriting recognition. This program is automatically launched with Adobe Acrobat Reader on non-Tablet PC machines.

To work around this issue, either use Task Manager to kill the "wisptis.exe" process or follow the instructions in the following Microsoft support article: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=838283
