10.1 ISE - How do I update my software configuration?

Description

I have evaluation versions of ISE and/or other Xilinx accessory tools. I have recently purchased the full versions of these tools. How do I update the Xilinx software configuration in order to launch the full version of the tools?

Solution


The Xilinx Product Configuration Utility allows you to update the software product configuration with a new Registration ID that has the entitlement information for the purchased products.



NOTE: Before using this tool, make sure you have a 25-digit Registration ID that validates the software you recently purchased. The Registration ID can be obtained from the Xilinx Entitlement Center after you select the appropriate products from the "Entitled Products" section. If you are having difficulties obtaining the new Registration ID, contact Xilinx Customer Service. Contact information can be found at:
