64-bit Project Navigator crash

Hi

 

I recently installed Xilinx ISE WebPack for a course in my institute. When I open the 64-bit project navigator, go to New Project and click on the 3 dots next to Location, it crashes. Can someone help?

Re: 64-bit Project Navigator crash

Hi,

 

The Windows-8 is not a supported OS for Xilinx tools. Refer to page-30 of http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_2/irn.pdf for list of supported OS.

 

Thanks,

Deepika.

Thanks,
Deepika.

Re: 64-bit Project Navigator crash

When is it expected? Will Xilinx work reliably with a Windows 7 VM?

Re: 64-bit Project Navigator crash

Hi,

 

Yes, you can use it on Windows-7 professional OS.

 

The support for windows-8 OS is on road map as of now. We can expect this to be supported in the near future.

 

Thanks,

Deepika.

Re: 64-bit Project Navigator crash

Hi,
As pointed by deepika, Windows 8 is not supported. 
 
Windows 8 is planned to have "Limited Support" for 2013.1. Xilnx cant assure that we will resolve every issue , but we will stlil support problems that arise, and the idea is to document any problems that do arise. Full support to windows 8 will depend upon the customer OS adaption.

Re: 64-bit Project Navigator crash

Well, that's my choice. Just because you hate Windows 8 doesn't mean everyone hates it.

If my job depended on running a particular software tool (and it does), then I wouldn't fsck around with trying to run that tool on an unsupported operating system. 

 

Just sayin'.

Re: 64-bit Project Navigator crash

If your job depends on it fine, continue with whatever works for you. I'm not denying that. I'm just a student on this side and anyways I installed Windows 7 on a VHD for Xilinx.

Re: 64-bit Project Navigator crash

For everyone trying to use Xilinx ISE 14.5 in Windows 8 x64. Rename libPortability.dll to libPortability.dll.orig, and copy libPortabilityNOSH.dll to libPortability.dll.

 

Do this in:

C:\Xilinx\14.5\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64

C:\Xilinx\14.5\ISE_DS\common\lib\nt64 (copy dll from first location)

 

This turns off SmartHeap.

 

This will fix ISE and iMPACT crashes on file dialogs.
