OS: Windows 8.1
I'm working on a project where some teammates have the 2014.2 version of Vivado and I have the 2015.2 version. The MIG they've created imports correctly but needs to be upgraded. When upgrading, I get these errors:
Followed by some warnings suggesting running 'recustomization.' Unfortunately, this doesn't work either - it launches a process called mig.exe which promptly crashes before much of anything happens.
If I instead try to run the IP generator for mig_7series directly (not importing existing IP), the same mig.exe crash occurs.
Any suggestions? I can't synthesize or simulate while this IP is locked down. None of the other IPs in use had any issues upgrading.
Thanks in advance.

Are your colleagues using Windows 8.1 too?
Did you try creating a new IP from Vivado IP catalog? Does this also fail ?

Yes, I believe we are all on Windows 8.1, and I did try to use the IP generator directly but it crashes, too. It seems as if mig.exe is corrupted or is missing some permissions, though I'm not really sure why.
I've downloaded 2014.2 and will attempt to use that as the IP updates in 2015 aren't relevant to our uses.

So, after switching to 2014.4, I was able to regenerate the IP but ONLY after running Vivado in 32-bit mode.
It's not clear why I receive failures for this when running Vivado normally (64-bit), and it's not clear why Vivado 2015.x wouldn't work either.
