Install - How do I know which Individual Product Installation File I should download?


When I open the Xilinx product download page (http://www.xilinx.com/support/download.html) I see a number of different download options.   

How do I know which individual product installation file I should download?


Xilinx has grouped the tools according to type of licenses we provide and by Operating System (OS).

The Vivado Full Image download is an all-in one download, it contains the installer for all editions along with SDK and Lab Tools.

If you will only install on a specific OS, download the OS specific download.

The OS specific download includes an installer for both a 32-bit and 64-bit OS of that type. 

To use the Web Install Thin Client, and download only the files you will actually need, download the Operating System and bit-width which matches the one on your machine.

When choosing an Install client, please do not choose a 32-bit client if you are running a 64-bit operating system.

If you wish to install 32-bit applications, it can be done from within the 64-bit client.
