Hello @azad.jalali and @ssmith,

 

That is correct, Sean S. and yourself are both working for the same company, but you are just located in different regions. Indeed, there seems to be some IT rules set for you and that is why both of you having issues installing the Software.

Please raise a case with your IT and explain the situation/error to them and they should be able to help you to have this installed successfully at your machines.

 

Have a nice day.

Hi @ssmith,

 

1. Make sure your system meets the requirements described in Chapter 3, Architecture Support and Requirements.

https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_7/ug1227-spartan6-vm-windows10.pdf

 

2. Disable anti-virus software on your machine before installation. 

3. Disable/Uninstall any virtualization hypervisor software already installed on the Windows 10 machine. If Oracle VirtualBox is already installed and cannot be uninstalled then you can follow specific steps to install the ISE Virtual Machine using your existing Oracle VirtualBox installation. ( For this follow steps mentioned in page 11 in provided link.)

That link points to a problem with the installer crashing - mine does not crash - it fails to start. It  highlights a problem that needs fixing, but fails to explain what the problem is. Is there a log i can read?

Did you have any luck figuring this out? I'm getting the same worthless cryptic error message and am frustrated to say the least. I specifically allowed my IT department to upgrade my desktop to Win10 after months of hounding because Xilinx released this new version of ISE 14.7, and it doesn't work.

Balkrishan,

 

That AR was released before the Win10 version of ISE 14.7 was even released. It doesn't address the new virtualized version of 14.7 at all. We need support specific to this new version, not an irrelevant AR.

Re: ISE Windows 10 version does not install

Jump to solution

Hello @azad.jalali,

 

1) As already indicated by @hemangd, have you checked User Guide 1227 (https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_7/ug1227-spartan6-vm-windows10.pdf) -> Chapter 3->Architecture Support and Requirements? Are these requirements met in your case?

 

I.e.

 

System Requirements:

Because this solution is enabled by virtualization, the processor of the Windows 10 machine must support virtualization technology.

This technology is called VT-x for Intel processors and AMD-V for AMD CPUs. In addition to the CPU requirement, this virtualization technology also needs to be enabled in the BIOS setup.

Note that in some cases this technology is not enabled by default and must be enabled by updating the BIOS settings. Refer to your Windows 10 machine vendor documentation for instructions to access BIOS.

The ISE® Virtual Machine is deployed using Oracle VirtualBox hypervisor. Because only one hypervisor can be enabled on a system, you must disable/uninstall any other hypervisor, such as Microsoft Hyper-V, prior installation.

 

In order to run properly this solution has the following minimum hardware requirements:

CPU: minimum of 2 cores

RAM: 8 GB

Disk Space: 85 GB

Xilinx recommends a minimum screen resolution of 1280 x 1024. Some GUI elements do not display properly at lower resolutions

 

 

Therefore, there are only a few places where this error message can show up, either virtualization is disabled in the BIOS, hyper-v is enabled, virtual box is already installed, or an old virtual box is installed.

 

Can you double check on the above requirements and confirm on these please?

 

2) Are you an administrator on the machine? You must be an administrator in order for the installer to run. 

 

3) Can you submit the install log, which should be under C:\Users\<user_name>\.Xilinx\xinstall\xinstall_ .log? Also, there should be a copy under C:\Xilinx\.xinstall\ISE_VM_14.7.

If you can’t find any log file in the location above, can you check the location for any install log that can be found in the install directory (you can do a search on your machine for the install log file).

 

4) Another possibility that could cause this issue:

 

We have seen before, where one of the users who has reported the same issue to us a while ago, where the problem was due to their IT Group Policy is setting ExecutionPolicy to be too strict, and overriding what the Install script sets it to. If that is the case i your situation, perhaps you can work with your IT to get this lifted temporarily so you can install the software?

 

If you have any questions on the above, please let me know.

 

Kind Regards,

Anatoli

I think i may have a security setting issue which i am asking my IS group to look-at. It looks like the installer is using some file that is not digitally signed?

 

I'll update this as i find out more in case others see this problem.

 

from my log:

Hello @ssmith,

 

Your computer needs to have enabled virtualization, otherwise the installer cannot proceed because this is the requirement apart from the OS.

 

Can you please double check and verify that your virtualization is enabled?

Anatoli

Hi Anatoli,

 

I appreciate the thorough response! My machine is a Core i5-6500 so it definitely supports VT-x. I am an administrator and was unable to find the log file.

 

However your 4th point is interesting and is something I suspected as well. The installation failed on two completely different machines so I wouldn't be surprised if it's an IT issue. I will check on this. For all we know, @ssmith and myself may work at the same company under the same IT rules. I'll let you know!

 

Thanks,

Azad

Just to close out this issue, @ssmith and myself were able to resolve this issue through our IT departments.

 

In case someone else sees this thread with the same issue, this was the solution: The issue ended up being our ExecutionPolicy setting, which had to be temporarily changed to "Unrestricted" for the installer to run one of its (unsigned) scripts. See here for a description of the setting and how to change it in PowerShell, keeping in mind it might be imposed at the user or group policy level in which case your IT department might need to get involved.

 

Thanks,

Azad
