Keywords: Alliance, start menu, icon, dsnmgr.exe,
General Description: After installing the Alliance Series software version 1.5i, the icons in the start menu do not work. The links do, however, point to the correct executable files in the correct install directory.
On possible solution: Make sure the icons for these program links in the start menu are pointing to the respective executable file. For example, make sure the icon for the Design Manager.lnk file is pointing to the dsgnmgr.exe file in the xilinx\bin\nt driectory or the correct install directory.
In Windows NT: -right click on the start menu button at bottum left of screen -select "Open all users" from the pop-up menu -find the Design Manager link -right-click on the Design Manager link and select properties -select the Shortcut tab in the Design Manager Properties dialog -click the Change Icon... button -make sure it is pointing to the dsgnmgr.exe file which is usually located in the xilinx\bin\nt directory.
