Downloading and Installing the Full Installation File

If you downloaded the full product installation, decompress the file and run xsetup (for Linux) or xsetup.exe (for Windows, not available for SDAccel™) to launch the installation.

If you downloaded the web installer client, launch the downloaded file.You are prompted to log in and use your regular Xilinx login credentials to continue with the installation process.

Xilinx recommends the use of 7-zip or WinZip (v.15.0 or newer) to decompress the downloaded tar.gz file.

  • The Download and Install Now choice allows you to select specific tools and device families on following screens, downloads only the files required to install those selections, and then installs them for you. After entering your login credentials, you can select between a traditional web-based installation or a full image download.
  • The Download Full Image requires you to select a download destination and to choose whether you want a Windows only, Linux only, or an install that supports both operating systems. There are no further options to choose with the Download Full Image selection, and installation needs to be done separately by running the xsetup application from the download directory.
