Hi, The Nexys3 board is Spartan 6 based, so the correct toolset to use is Xilinx ISE Webpack. Officially ISE doesn't support Windows 8 - it crashes every time a dialog box opens!

But instructions on a fix can be found at many places (once you know what to Google for - "Xilinx ISE WIndows 8 fix" was what I used to find these three)

Once fixed, the tools are as good as they are on Windows 7

Hi,

I have a couple of clarifying questions before anybody will be able to effectively help you.

What license file are you referring to? A Vivado license? What board are you using?

Thanks,
JColvin

Hi, 

I'm not sure what changes you are referring to. Could you post the link you got that explains these changes?

Thanks,
