Re: ISE Design Suite 13.4

I couldn't install the above named version (13.4) as my system (windows vista, 32 bit) does not support the version I downloaded.

 

Is there anything I could do to rectify the problem or would I have to download the version that supports my system?

 

From some of the relese notes and guides I read,  it is often stated Vista business 32 bit or 64 bit as the recommended system. Is Vsta business different from the normal Windows Vista which I have?

 

Can anyone help me with answers to my querries or possibly, recommend the right version of the software for my system.

 

Thanks.

You won't be supported, but you could give it a shot.  Not putting an OS in the Release Notes doesn't mean it won't work, it means it won't be supported and most likely was not tested.  There are 4 versions of Vista: Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, and Ultimate.  Of all these versions, I think the latter 3 should be fine and would only worry about Home Basic potentially having issues.

Thank you very much for your response.

 

According to the instalation instrucion, I should run "xsetup.exe" to install the software, but each time I try I get this message: "The version of this file is not compatible with version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whther you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher".

 

Could you, please enlighten me about this message; what it means and what to do to solve the problem. 

 

Thanks

Try to run the xsetup.exe directly under the platform forlder.  If you are running Vista32, run nt/xsetup.exe.  If you are running Vista64, run nt64/xsetup.exe.

 

If this still doesn't work, well there's proof it wasn't tested, and why it's not listed as a supported OS.
