According to the Vivado 2020.2 release notes, Xilinx supports the following Windows Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows Professional/Enterprise 10.0 1809 Update; 10.0 1903 Update; 10.0 1909; Update; 10.0 2004 Update.
Can anyone tell me if Update 20H2 and/or Update 21H1 are also supported for Vivado 2020.2? Or are only the versions listed in the release notes compatible?
It seems that any updates provided in the 2004 update would also be included in 20H2 and 21H1 updates but I would like to get some confirmation from anyone who is using Vivado 2020.2 under either of these updates.
Any feedback would be appreciated.

It will likely work just fine. But if something breaks, and you try and get help, the first answer will be "use a supported OS version".
2020.2 would have been verified before the 20H2 release was out, hence there will be no garantees.

Thank you for your reply.
I agree with your comment about if it doesn't work correctly then the first step would be to install a version of Windows 10 that's on the list. I thought it would work fine with Windows 10 update 1607 but since it wasn't on the supported Windows OS list I figured it needed to be updated to something newer. 21H2 was the latest but not necessarily the greatest so I wanted to hear from at least a couple other people who are successfully running Vivado 2020.2 while running under 20H2 or 21H1.

I have the same question related to Vivado 2021.1, which lists the exact same Windows 10 versions in the Supported List as 2020.2, despite being 6 months newer than 2020.2. While 2020.2 may have been verified before the 20H2 release was out, that is likely not the case with Vivado 2021.1. Is there another reason?
