Vivado 2017.4 lab edition instalation

Hi, 

I have read the installation and setup guide for Vivado 2017.4.  I have the webpack on my system, but need to add the Lab edition for the purpose of programming and supporting production environments.  I am running Windows 7 Professional.  I do not have xsetup.exe on my machine.  Where does Xilinx recommend downloading this application from?  I work for a government contractor, so  I need to request this application be verified before putting it on machines which access government information.

 

Does Xilinx plan on eventually creating a lab version which is self extracting and installing?  In lab environments, it is common to need just the programming tools such as Impact in the past.  They may only be programming or verifying programming and the project file may not be available.
