Install - Operating System (OS) Support on Xilinx ISE Design Tools

Description

This answer record summarizes the operating system support section of the Release Notes from current and past Xilinx design tool versions.

Solution

14.x

  • Windows XP Pro/Windows 7 Pro 32/64-bit/Windows Server 2008 - ISE, ChipScope, EDK, Sysgen, ISIM
  • RHEL WS 5 32/64-bit, RHEL WS 6 32/64-bit - ISE, ChipScope, EDK, ISIM, Sysgen
  • SUSE 32/64-bit - ISE, ChipScope, EDK, ISIM, Sysgen

Note: In the ISE release "supported platforms" are only designated by the major version. However, testing and official support is limited to platform versions that were released early enough prior to the ISE release (about two months) in order that complete testing and compatibility could be ensured. 

For example: ISE 14.7 was released in Oct 3, 2013. RHEL was released Nov. 21, 2013. Therefore RHEL 6.5 was never tested or officially supported for ISE 14.7.
