After seemingly successful installation of ISE Design Suite on a system running Windows XP Professional Edition SP3, PlanAhead fails to start, generating a system error dialog with the following message:

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002). Click on OK to terminate the application.

In XP Chinese version, the system error message is :


This problemis caused if the installerfails toinstall the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)" or if the package (vc2008sp1) was uninstalled or disabled.

To install the package, navigate to <ISE Design Suite Install directory>\ISE_DS\PlanAhead\tps\win32 and run vcredit_x86.exe.

The system should be rebooted after installing vcredit_x86.exe
