PC Installation instructions:

1. Download the file 15_service_pack1_nt.zip. For Virtex
support,
also download the file 15_service_pack1_virtex_all_nt.zip
or one of the smaller device specific equivalents.

2. Create a directory to use as temporary staging area for
an installation into the A1.5/F1.5 %XILINX% area.

3. Use Winzip or an equivalent utility to unzip the update
file(s) into the staging directory. All update files should
be unzipped into the staging directory before setup is run.
Be sure to preserve the folder structure of the archive
when extracting the data. For Winzip, this is done by
checking "Use Folder Names" in the Extract window. For
PKUNZIP, this is done by using the -d command line option.

4. Run the setup executable in the staging directory.
Only files that already exist in %XILINX% will be
updated.
