5.2i CORE Generator - The CORE Generator Updates Installer is not available for 5.1i and 5.2i IP updates


Keywords: F_IP1, F_IP2, CORE Generator, COREGen, Core, Update, Installer, updates, disabled, URL can not be read, installation

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The COREGen Updates Installer is not available for IP updates for ISE 5.x software. If I select Tools -> Updates Installer, the installer window appears and reports the message:

"[ ] Installer Disabled - Please click here for info -->"

If I click on the check box to the left of the message, a pop-up window reports:

"Installation Error: URL cannot be read!"


The CORE Generator Updates Installer has been disabled for the remainder of the 5.x release due to a bug found late in the 5.2i release; this bug would allow users to install IP Updates that are incompatible with their installed Xilinx software versions.

The latest CORE Generator IP Updates are still available for download from the Xilinx web site.

For information on the latest available CORE Generator IP Updates, please see the Xilinx Software Updates page at:

Follow the instructions for downloading and installing these updates manually.
