Xilinx ISE (Project Navigator) x64 (64 bit) on Windows 8

Quick tip for those frustrated by file dialog crashes in Xilinx ISE x64 on Windows 8.

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.
This information was found from another thread, thank you howardp from Xilinx in this thread:

This doesn't resolve Vivado or PlanAhead issues. This only helps for ISE and iMPACT on Windows 8 x64.

  2. I cannot get it running. Also the installer gives a blue-screen when installing the cable drivers.
