I install ISE 13.1 at VISTA 64bit. Sometimes, when I create a new project, and add files I get an error: "_pn.exe has stopped working" , and the the ISE is closed - I can not work with the problem. What is the problem? How can I fix it?
ISE 13.1 is a new release, and there have been several reports of crashes and other problems.
Suggest you open a webcase to report your problem (and create a bug report submission). Then download and install ISE 12.4 and see if the 12.4 release works better for you.
Some more suggestions:
Keep current with Windows updates
Try 32-bit GUI shell instead of 64-bit shell

Summary: 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.
