PlanAhead - _xilinxnotify.exe has stopped working

Description

When launching the PlanAhead tool, a Windows error occurs stating that _xilinxnotify.exe has stopped working.

What does this error mean and how do I avoid it?

Solution

Xilinx Notify is the program used to check for updates to the ISE tools. If you do not want to check for any updates on startup, you can go to Tools -> Options and in the General section (on the bottom), uncheck the "Automatically check xilinx.com for updates on startup" box.
