Solution

The MIG Design Notes are stored in a .chm (Microsoft Compressed HTML Help) file called design_notes.chm. On some Windows installations, this error will occur when .chm files are opened from network locations. Therefore, if MIG is installed on a Network drive, this error may occur when the design_notes.chm file is opened. A number of Windows updates have been seen to cause this error. If MIG is installed on a local drive, this will not occur.

In order to view the MIG Design Notes, please do one of the following.
1. Install MIG on a local drive and re-generate the MIG v1.7 design. During design generation, the design_notes.chm file will properly open.
2. Copy the design_notes.chm file to a local drive and manually open the file. To locate the design_notes.chm help file, browse to the following directory:
%XILINX%/coregen/ip/xilinx/other/com/xilinx/ip/mig_v1_7/data/docs
Copy the design_notes.chm file and paste it in a user-specified directory on a local drive. Manually open the file to view the MIG v1.7 Design Notes.
