On Windows, Install Cable Drivers is an optional selection in the installer.

For Linux, because root or sudo access is required to install drivers, this option has been removed from the Linux installer beginning in Vivado 2015.4. The general Vivado installer can now be run on Linux without root or sudo privileges. To install cable drivers on Linux, there is now a script that must be run as root or sudo post-installation.
