1. OS Support Annoucement
End of Windows 7 Support for Xilinx tools
Earlier this year, Microsoft had announced the end of support for their Windows 7 operating system beginning on January 14th 2020. This essentially means that Microsoft will no longer provide technical support, software updates and security updates for Windows 7.
Read more details about the announcements and how it may affect Windows 7 users here.
In alignment with Microsoft’s end of life support for Windows 7, Xilinx will also end Windows 7 support for our tools beginning with 2020.1 release.
2019.2 release of Vivado, Vitis, Model Composer & System Generator, will be the last release to support Windows 7. Beginning with 2020.1 release, Xilinx will no longer support Windows 7.
In addition to this, beginning with 2020.1, Xilinx will also drop support for 32-bit HW server tools.
Please contact Xilinx technical support team if you have any additional questions.
