10.1 ISE - Fatal Error occurs when I select Edit Strategy under Design Goals and Strategies


I right-click the Implement process and select "Design Goals and Strategies" (or select Project -> Design Goals and Strategies). Then, in the Design Goals and Strategies window, I click Edit Strategy. This causes Project Navigator to fail with a Fatal error message:

"FATAL_ERROR: GuiUtilities:Gq_Application.c:590:1.20 - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover ..."


This can happen if you apply a strategy, switch device family between Virtex-4 and one of the QPro Virtex-4 families, and then try to edit a strategy.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 10.1 Service Pack available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 10.1 Service Pack 1.
