11.x ISE Design Suite XilinxUpdate - Can I run XilinxUpdate in silent (batch) mode?

Description

Is it possible to update the ISE Design Suite tools without launching the GUI?

Solution

Running XilinxUpdate in a mode without use of the GUI is available in 11.x.

Download the Unified Local XilinxUpdate from:

http://license.xilinx.com/getLicense?group=esd_oms&tab=DownloadUpdates or the Download File Archive at http://download.xilinx.com

and download the XilinxUpdate batch script from: http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/ise11_updates/batch_xilinxupdate_script_11_x.zip

ISE Design Suite 11.4 and later

Extract the "batch_XilinxUpdate_script.zip" file and perform the following:

- Open "batch_script.txt" in a text editor.

- Uncomment for the update you are currently trying to run, making sure you set InstallPath correctly.

- Set the location to your Xilinx ISE Design Suite install in the script.

- Open a command prompt and navigate to <UPDATER_LOCATION>/bin/[PLATFORM].

- Type ./xilinxupdate(.exe) -batch <FULL_PATH_TO_BATCH_SCRIPT.TXT>

Read the supplied "README.txt" for more information.

ISE Design Suite 11.3 and earlier

Due to a bug within the batch installer, -forcebatch must be used rather than -batch:

Extract the "batch_XilinxUpdate_script.zip" file and perform the following:

- Open "batch_script.txt" in a text editor.

- Following the supplied instruction, confirm that proper updates are selected.

- Set the location to your Xilinx ISE Design Suite install in the script.

- Open a command prompt and navigate to <UPDATER_LOCATION>/bin/[PLATFORM].

- Type ./xilinxupdate(.exe) -forcebatch <FULL_PATH_TO_BATCH_SCRIPT.TXT>

Read the supplied "README.txt" for more information.
