ISE Design Suite crashes



My ISE crashes for random reasons and at times give me no errors.


I'm using Windows 8 64 bit.


For example, when I go to project and click on "add source", it shuts down the whole thing.


Sometimes, when I copy or cut some code, it crashes on me.


Why is this happening?


Someone please help!

Re: ISE Design Suite crashes

Windows 8 is not yet supported, officially.   Having said that, the crash you describe seems *very* familiar.  Suggest you search the forums for "smart heap", and a possible solution thread should turn up.

1. Read the manual or user guide. Have you read the manual? Can you find the manual?
2. Search the forums (and search the web) for similar topics.
3. Do not post the same question on multiple forums.
4. Do not post a new topic or question on someone else's thread, start a new thread!
5. Students: Copying code is not the same as learning to design.
6 "It does not work" is not a question which can be answered. Provide useful details (with webpage, datasheet links, please).
7. You are not charged extra fees for comments in your code.
8. I am not paid for forum posts. If I write a good post, then I have been good for nothing.
