How can I resolve this issue?


The possible causes of this fatal error are listed below.

  • Unsupported Operating System.
    • Different OS and OS types (Professional vs. Home) have different libraries.
      For Linux operating systems, the distribution (RedHat vs. Ubuntu) will also make a difference.
      Check to make sure your OS version is one that is on the Xilinx supported list for the version of ISE Design Suite you are trying to run (Xilinx Answer 18419).
  • This could be caused by a bad installation.
    • Re-installing the ISE Design Suite can resolve the problem.
  • This might be caused by the ISE software environment variables not being set properly.
    • In Windows, use the Start Menu shortcut to launch the tools, or use the command prompt from the ISE Design Suite Accessories folder in the Start Menu.
    • In Linux, source the settings[32|64].(c)sh under the ISE installation directory might resolve the problem.
