M1.5. MAP: Dr Watson error on NT machines

Description

KEYWORDS: PC, Dr Watson, Visual Studio 6, OLE, automatic, exception, MSVS 6.0

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
Map M1.5 fails every time with a Dr Watson error on a PC.
This is independant of the design.

This can be caused by an incompatibility issue between Xilinx' software and Microsoft's Visual Studio 6 software.
OLE automation exception errors occur.

It seems as though the Visual Studio software 6.0 updates the OS at a very
fundamental level, which cannot easily be undone.

Solution

RESOLUTION 1
=============

Uninstall the Microsoft Visual Studio 6 software.
