operation

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
This problem may be seen while running FPGA Express 2.0 on older versions of
Windows 95: From the Express GUI, selecting the Synthesis->Options pulldown
menu selection my result in a system error followed by a crash of the
application.

"This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown.

This issue is primarily seen on pre-OSR2 versions of Windows 95. You can
confirm the version used by entering an MS-DOS session for Windows 95 and
typing VER.

Windows 95 B (OSR2) will return: 4.00.1111
Older Windows 95 versions will return: 4.00.950

Solution

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.

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/iebuild/ie4sp1_win32/en/18174.htm
to install Internet Explorer 4.01.

Installing Windows 95 Service Packs will unfortunately NOT solve this issue.
