Hey everyone ^^
I’ve been using CIS 22.214.171.124 under WinXP Pro SP3 for quite a while now without any trouble, but yesterday I encountered a problem with Defense+. I wanted to run a test bench simulation using Xilinx ISE 9.1i, but this failed because D+ blocked the GNU C++ compiler that is called by ISE to compile the test bench on the fly. D+ doesn’t give a notification but stalls the execution forever so the test bench is never compiled and ISE freezes, waiting for the compilation to complete.
First I tried to add both all files in the ISE folder and all files in the C++ compiler folder to the “My Own Safe Files” within D+ but this didn’t seem to have any effect, then I removed them all from the “Computer Security Policy” list as well, since that is the recommended procedure in case the wrong files might accidentally have ended up on a blacklist. Still didn’t work.
Then I uninstalled both ISE and the C++ compiler and reinstalled them into a different folder, hoping that D+ might not be able to find them any more but… as you might expect, that didn’t work either.
So for now I’ve completely disabled Defense+ (set it to “Inactive”, had to reboot my computer to apply that) and my test benches finally get compiled again, but of course I’d like to get Defense+ online again as well, since it has always done a good job and I assume this isn’t the correct way to handle conflicts ^^
Anyone got any idea what’s going wrong here? I can provide more technical details if needed.
Thanks for your time and efforts,
