There are problems with the current SmartModel version. New models will be released with the next version of ISE, scheduled for release in 2005. Until the new models are released, please use the models from this Answer Record. Refer to the other resolutions in this Answer for instructions on installing the patch on each operating system.

The new models are now available with ISE 7.1i.

The problems fixed by these models are as follows:
- GT10 (step 1); this also fixes the functionality problems on Windows machines.
- Glogic functionality problems with ISE 6.2i.
- EMAC functionality problems.

You do not need to run CompXLib after the installation of these models.
