13.1 Project Navigator - Project Navigator cannot be closed from Windows 7 menu bar


When I try to close Project Navigator through the right click menu on the Windows 7 Task Bar (at the bottom of the screen, next to the Start button), the following message appears:  

You cannot Exit the Project Navigator while a process is running. Either wait until the running process completes or terminate the process using the Stop command on the Process menu.

I am receiving this message even though there are no processes currently running in Project Navigator.


This problem can occur in Windows 7 when an external application, such as PlanAhead or iMPACT is launched from Project Navigator. 

The problem occurs even after those applications are closed.

If the Project Navigator Project is closed first, the Windows Task bar can be used to close Project Navigator. 

Otherwise, Project Navigator can be closed with an open project by selecting File -> Exit or clicking the red X button on the top right corner.

This issue will be resolved in ISE Design Suite 13.2.
