Install - Can I have multiple versions of ISE Design Suite/Vivado IDE on the same machine?

Description

Can I have multiple versions of ISE Design Suite or Vivado IDE on the same machine?

Solution

Yes, when you are installing the software, select a different directory for the tools to be installed to.
 
When you want to change which ISE Design Suite/Vivado IDE tools you would like to use, do one of the following:
 
  • Launch the desired version using the associated Start Menu or desktop icon.
     
  • Launch ISE or Vivado from the <install>/bin/<OS> directory of the desired version.  
    Both ISE and Vivado start with a boot loader script that sets up the environment and then runs the executable.
     
  • Change the environment variables (for example PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH) to the set of tools you want to use.  
    Each install will come with a setting64.bat or setting64.sh file to help automate the setting of appropriate environment variables.
