Hi, I have buy a Diligent BASYS 3 board build on Artis-7 FPGA, but when I download Vivado in the part customize your installation the "7 series" option under "devices" is disabled as all suboption into it. This is where I found Artis-7. I downloaded it any way since... I had no other choice... I installed the board file like Diligent explained but they don't show in new project wizard. I only have 2 "Versal something" family aviable... How can I get Vivado work properly? How I can add Artis7?

What version of Vivado did you download.
Version 2020.3 is for Versal devices ONLY - you cannot use it for any other devices. This is (somewhat) clearly stated on the download page:
IMPORTANT NOTE: This release supports Versal devices only!
For customers using Versal devices, Xilinx recommends installing Vivado 2020.3. For other devices, please continue to use Vivado 2020.2.
So for the Artix-7 (which is a 7 series device) you must use Vivado 2020.2.

Thank you for your help.
