SEU Estimator – Microsoft Excel runtime errors during spreadsheet opening and operation


Users of the SEU Estimator on PCs with Microsoft products configured for a language other than English might experience runtime errors during the opening of the spreadsheet and operation.

Xilinx is investigating the cause of this issue. Until the cause is found and a solution implemented, Xilinx has identified a work-around that appears to reduce the likelihood of the issue.



Change the Display Language to English rather than "Match Microsoft Windows".

Open Excel, without opening SEU Estimator. Go to File -> Options -> Language.

Normally, the default settings look like the following:


In the "Choose Display and Help Languages" section, set English as the default Display Language by clicking on English in the Display Language list and then clicking "Set as Default". 

Do not change the Help Language setting. After the change, the settings look like the following:


Click OK to accept the changes, close Excel, and then open the SEU Estimator.
