As soon as I open Coregen (ISE 12.1, Windows XP 32bit) it immediately crashes... I tried launching it from command prompt with the -ddd switches but to no avail.
It simply gives: _cg.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
I also tried -help to see if I can get any more possible switches that could customize the startup but it also crashes.

If you haven't already tried this, the first and easiest remedy to try is re-installing the tools - in case a file was corrupted. You may wish to consider updating to 12.4, if you'll be re-installing anyway. In my experience, re-installing the tools (from 12.x to 12.x) does not wipe out your project settings, so it's (much!) less disruptive than re-installing Windows.

If you still have the problem after doing a re-install, check out the forum post / thread at: http://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Design-Entry/Coregen-Webpack-12-2-won-t-run/m-p/84868#M1450
The thread has several steps to the trouble shooting but running Dependancy Walker is usually the best way to get to the heart of the issue.
