FPGA Editor 13.1 - FPGA Editor won't launch on SUSE 11 install


When trying to launch FPGA Editor on a SUSE 11 machine the tools never opens and the following message is received:

Wind/U Error (248): Failed to connect to the registry on server <server_name>


If a "libXm.so.3 not found" message is received on SUSE 11 machine, installing libXm.so.3 can fix it. 

This can be installed in any directory in LD_LIBRARY_PATH so as not to affect other installed software.

If launching FPGA Editor results in  the error "Wind/U Error 248", stopping rpcbind and restarting it in insecure mode can fix it:

/etc/init.d/rpcbind stop 
/etc/init.d/rpcbind start 

This needs to be redone every time the SUSE 11 server is restarted.
