Lab Edition, Full Product Download, or DVD

If you downloaded the Lab Edition or full product installation, decompress the file, and then run xsetup (for Linux) or xsetup.exe (for Windows) to launch the installation.

Lightweight Installer Download

If you downloaded the lightweight installer, launch the downloaded file. You are prompted to log in and use your regular Xilinx login credentials to continue with the installation process.
Note: On Linux the file is a .bin file and can be launched by running ./<name of the file>.bin. Please ensure that you have changed the file permissions to execute.

After entering your login credentials, you can select between a traditional web-based installation or a full install image download.

Download and Install Now
Allows you to select specific tools and device families on following screens, downloads only the files required to install those selections, and then installs them for you.
Download Image (Install Separately)
Requires you to select a download destination and to choose whether you want a Windows only, Linux only, or an install that supports both operating systems. You also have an option to either download the full installer or download only selected products. There are no further options to choose with the Full Image selection, and installation needs to be done separately by running the xsetup application from the download directory.
