4.1i Design Manager - How do I open multiple instances of the Design Manager?

Description

Keywords: multiple, several, instances, open, Design Manager

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The Design Manager will only allow me to invoke one instance at a time. If I try to start up a new instance of the Design Manager while another is running, the existing Design Manager will pop to the top of the screen and open the latest project.

Solution

To enable multiple instances of the Design Manager, set the following environment variable before invoking Design Manager:

UNIX:

setenv XIL_GUI_INSTANCECHECKING 0

PC:

set XIL_GUI_INSTANCECHECKING=0

NOTE: This environment variable setting should not be set if you intend to use ISE's Project Navigator. Project Navigator will hang if XIL_GUI_INSTANCECHECKING is set to 0.
