8.1i ISE - Project Navigator does not show 3rd Party synthesis support for Automotive, Rad-Hard, and Military devices

Description

Keywords: Hi-REL, Military, radiation, precision, Synplify, Leonardo, third-party

When I select several of the Automotive, Rad-Hard, or Military devices in Project preferences, I no longer have the option to select one of the 3rd party synthesis tools.

Many of the disabled device/synthesis tool combinations were available in ISE 7.1i or by using the synthesis tool in standalone mode.

Solution

This issue is fixed in the latest 8.1i Service Pack, available at:
http://www.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp
The first service pack containing the fix is 8.1i Service Pack 1.
