Designer Lab does not launch Xilinx Project Navigator

Recommended Posts

The link to Xilinx downloads is broken currently in designlab.  However, after a google search for "ise webpack" I downloaded a Windows 10 installer for the Xilinx tools.  This installed virtualbox which launch the Xilinx tools in a Linux VM after registration that assumed I was a company.  When I press EDIT CIRCUIT on designlab, it asked which program to use to open ".xise" files, and of course no such program existed that Windows could find.  Could someone provide me with the correct download links?

1) download this tar file https://www.xilinx.com/member/forms/download/xef.html?filename=Xilinx_ISE_DS_Win_14.7_1015_1.tar&akdm=1

2) untar the file somewhere on you computer (7-zip can do this for you)

3) go to the location of the untar'ed files and run xsetup.exe

4) after installation you need to fix a few things in order to have it run on win10.  See https://www.eevblog.com/forum/microcontrollers/guide-getting-xilinx-ise-to-work-with-windows-8-64-bit/ The PlanAhead part is optional (not needed for DesignLab)
