Windows 8 ISE fix.


Recommended Posts

I've finally taken the big plunge and gone to Windows 8 - replacing my old Athlon II P320 2.1GHz  laptop with a end-of-line none-touch i3-3110m running Windows 8. The real reason was that my old laptop's battery has a dead cell, and the new mode has a 1600x900 screen, and was 45% off :-).


However I've now hit the "64 bit ISE Project navigator doesn't work on Windows 8" issue.


This blog has a working fix -


Rename C:\Xilinx\14.6\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64\libPortability.dll to C:\Xilinx\14.6\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64\libPortability.dll.orig, then copy  C:\Xilinx\14.6\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64\libPortabilityNOSH.dll to C:\Xilinx\14.6\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64\libPortability.dll


I've used this to build a couple of projects without any further issues - at least for ISE and Impact.
