Download Center - Attempting to directly open a file, rather than save, then open from Internet Explorer (IE), does not work

Description

I am using Internet Explorer to download files from the Xilinx website. When asked if I would like to Open or Save the file, I choose Open. The file downloads correctly, but there are errors during installation.

Solution

When using Internet Explorer to download files from the Xilinx website, it is recommended that you first save the file locally, then open it.

Issue: During Linux or Solaris installation, I receive the following error:

"?OLE API Function CoInitialize is not currently implemented. Further warnings will be suppressed."

After launching the setup program from a Terminal Window, I receive the following error:

"OLE API Function CoInitialize is not currently implemented. Further warnings will be suppressed."

Work-around: This is a false error and you can safely ignore the message.
