Batch Mode Installation Flow

The installer can run in an unattended batch process. To run unattended, a standard edition and install location must be specified or a configuration file must be present which tells the installer the install location and which of the tools, devices and options you wish to install. The installer has a mode in which it can generate a reference option file for you based on common configurations, which you can further edit to customize your installation.

Xilinx recommends that you generate this reference for each new quarterly release, so that new devices, tools, options or other changes will be accounted for in your options file.

To begin using batch mode, open a command shell and change to the directory where you have stored your extracted installer.

For Windows, open the command window with administrator privileges and run the xsetup.bat file, found in the \bin directory, and not xsetup.exe with the options below.
