ISE 14.7 should support that device

Thanks! I had been told in the past that I would need an earlier version but I have not been able to locate one. I'll try 14.7, thanks again!

I downloaded and installed ISE 14.7, however, I'm now trying to resolve a 'Just-in-time' error within Visual Studio. The application boots up but it stop working anytime you begin creating a new project.

Okay thanks for the assistance, I have successfully loaded the software and I've resolved my MicroSoft issues. However, when I started working through the tutorial 'ISE 9.1i Quick Start Tutorial' I notice it doesn't track one-to-one with the software, I was fine until I got to page 16. I can't find the 'Initial Timing and Clock Wizard'. Please advise where I can download a more update-to-date tutorial.

I'm also receiving the following error when I run the test bench:

 

ERROR:Simulator:861 - Failed to link the design
