AR# 5204: FPGA Express - Can I run more than one version of FPGA Express on my PC?
FPGA Express - Can I run more than one version of FPGA Express on my PC?
Keywords: FPGA Express, FPGA Compiler II, version, PC, Foundation, 95, 98, NT
General Description: Can I run multiple versions of Synopsys software on one operating system on my PC?
According to Synopsys, only one version of Synopsys may exist on a system at one time. This is due to registry settings that are set and used by each Synopsys product. For example, you cannot have FPGA Express 3.1 and FPGA Express 3.2 on the same machine.
Multiple products with the same version may exist, such as FPGA Compiler II and FPGA Express. However, they must all come from the same source. For example, problems will occur if you try to run Foundation Express and Workview Office Express on the same machine. (Please see (Xilinx Answer 4964) for further details.)
