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.

-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.
