FPGA Express - Opening FPGA Express (in stand-alone mode) results in an "Access Violation" or "Application Error" message

Description

Keywords: Synopsys, FPGA Express, synthesis, stand-alone, standalone, 3.3, 3.4, access, violation, application, error, Windows, error, Dr. Watson, start, open

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to open FPGA Express in stand-alone mode through Start -> Foundation Series -> Accessories -> FPGA Express, an "Access Violation" or "Application Error" error message is reported.

Solution

This could be caused by multiple versions of FPGA Express residing on the same machine. Because FPGA Express requires a number of entries in the system registry, conflicts may arise if two different versions are co-existing on the same machine. We strongly recommend that only one version of FPGA Express reside in a system.
