I downloaded ISE 14.7, started a new project, but the device dropdown has nothing except Spartan 6.
What do I need to do to get access to Coolrunner-II devices?

Download ISE which is shown in this snapshot from xilinx.com\download. I think you are using 14.7 windows 10 version which will only support spartan-6.

And a heads up
the version of ise that supports the cool runner , will not run on windows 10,

Is there any plan to fix this? It's getting hard to put together a machine that complies with up-to-date IT policies and still supports the old software interfaces.
Is CoolRunner no longer a viable product for Xilinx? The web site indicates support until 2024 and that customers are still starting new designs, but requiring an OS that went EOL and has ended all but "extended" support years ago.
On the Linux side, the cable drivers won't build against a modern kernel, so it's starting to look like it's time to abandon the platform.
