Install Foundation without the Xilinx libraries, and then attach the libraries separately.
The following instructions assume that Foundation will be installed into C:\ACTIVE.
1) Run the Foundation install program and select a Custom installation. 2) In the Installation Options dialog, click on the Select button next to System Libraries. 3) Click on None to deselect all libraries, then click OK. 4) Select other installation options if desired, and click Next to continue installation. 5) After installation, copy the libraries from the ACTIVE\SYSLIB directory on the CD into C:\ACTIVE\SYSLIB. Each library consists of 15 or 16 files. The libraries which end in 'U' are the Xilinx Unified Libraries. Do not copy the other libraries (XILINX2, etc) unless you require support for old (pre-XACT5) designs. 6) Open the Foundation Project Manager and select Applications -> Library Manager. 7) In the Library Manager, select Library -> Attach. 8) Select the C:\ACTIVE\SYSLIB directory. 9) Select all of the libraries in the directory and click Attach.
