General Description: When I synthesize a design with Synplify or Synplify Pro in ISE, I select the "Stop Process" (red X) icon on the tool bar. Synplify does not close, and the Synplify license remains checked out.
To immediately exit from a Synplify process run in ISE, you must kill the process from within the operating system.
For Windows platforms: - Open the Task Manager. - Select the Process tab. - End the synplify.exe process.
For Solaris platforms: - Type "top" and <return> at a command prompt to find the process ID. - Use the "kill" command to end that process.
