FPGA Express 2.0: Errors/Warnings/Messages window does not always work correctly
Keywords: FPGA Express, Foundation Express, GUI, Error, Warning, Message
General Description: The Errors/Warnings/Messages portion of the Alliance version (shipped by Synopsys, not Xilinx) of the FPGA Express 2.0 GUI does not work as smoothly as possible. After selecting an Implementation or Optimization of a design, the scroll bars may not work correctly. Also, the window does not always refresh properly.
In order to use the scroll bars in the Errors, Warnings, or Messages screens, you must first click on each of the three tabs. After they have all been 'touched', then they will work correctly.
Also, this issue can be solved by installing Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 (or 4.01). You do no actually have to use this software to fix the problem. The installation of Internet Explorer will update certain DLL files in the Windows directory.
