Felix Posted April 4, 2013 Report Share Posted April 4, 2013 So, it seems that Windows 8 (64 Bit) and ISE Design Suite 14.4 (64 Bit) don't get along. If you try to open a new project or add a source, it crashes. I am not sure if there is an easy way to switch to 32 bit from 64 bit, but here is how Iended up fixing my problem. You can edit your desktop shortcut to point toC:\Xilinx\14.4\ISE_DS\settings32.bat C:\Xilinx\14.4\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt\ise.exe and in the registry /* probably not necessary but it doesnt hurt.Computer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\isefile\DefaultIconComputer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\System Generator Project\DefaultIconchange 'nt64' to 'nt'*/ Computer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\isefile\shell\open\CommandComputer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\System Generator Project\shell\open\CommandComputer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\XPS_GUI\shell\open\Commandchange 'settings64.bat' to 'settings32.bat' there are a few other keys you can change.. just look for 'xilinx' in the registry andedit those (intellipoint, intellitype etc), but the ones listed are what i changed and they work for me Windows 8 is turning out to be such a pain that I have considered going to a straight Linux (CentOS 6.3) setup.Only downside is that my MUD Client wouldn't work...
