Install - Do I need a Download Manager to download Xilinx Tools from the Xilinx website?


Is a Download Manager required to download Xilinx Tools from the Xilinx website?


The Download Manager browser plug-in must be installed in order to download your product from the Xilinx website.

The use of the supplied Download Manager plug-in will ensure the complete download of all files downloaded from the site.

The Download Manager plug-in follows the standard plug-in installation convention.

In some cases, a companies policy or network setup do not allow the use of a download manager. 

To bypass the download manager in these cases the download URL can be adjusted. 

To do this change the "akdm=1" value to "akdm=0" in the URL.
