Downloaded SDSoC, got SDx

Hi,

I downloaded SDSoC with the executable Xilinx_SDSoC_2017.1_sdx_0623_1_Win64, installed it, but when I open the program installed, it's SDx and not SDSoC. I'm worried because I tried it also with the version 2016.4 and it did the same thing. SDx doesn't have the capacity to do SDSoC estimation, so I would prefer using SDSoC.
When I launch the exe file I get the window "SDx IDE 2017.1 Installer", why isn't it the SDSoC Installer ? When I have to chose the Development Environments I chose SDSoC Platforms.

 

Anyone got the same problem and could help me figure out what to do ?

Sometime around 2016.3 (I can't recall the exact release), the SDSoC and SDAccel tools were merged into a single one called SDx. SDx install has the capability to run both tools and the one that is chosen is based on the platform you chose when you create a project.

Thank you for the answer !

Though, why don't I have the third possibility "Estimation" when choosing Build Configurations -> Set Active ? I only have Release and Debug, even though I have the latest version of SDx and I chose SDSoC during the installation (I have a  microzed board).
