2.1i Install - Virtex-E / Spartan-II : Why are these families greyed out during installation / How can I enable software support for them ?


architecture, target, gray, 2.1i

General Description:

Several references to the Virtex-E and Spartan-II family are made

in the 2.1i release (For ex. - in the Documenation and Install). How

do I enable support for these new architectures ?

NOTE: Within the software, Spartan "2" is used to denote

this family, while the name given to the IC is Spartan "II". The same

family is being referred to in both instances.


Both the Virtex-E and Spartan-II device families require a special CD-Key

to be entered during Installation in order to enable their use in the 2.1i

software. Please visit the following website(s) to recieve these CD keys:

For Virtex-E:

For Spartan-II:
