is possible to download some development system for Xilinx XC4000* ? We have got still a lot of boards with FPGA XC4000* around the world and sometimes we need to update some designs and bitstreams.
So where can we download some design system on ftp xilinx ?
Thank you very much.

Old versions on found by looking for Xilinx classics.
Good luck! Hope you have old versions of Windows to run on.

I was going to point to the device support matrix for ISE classic versions, however it seems Xilinx has been busy removing older support data from the site. It used to be at:
However that now redirects to another page without the information on device support. Its really hard to find device support information on the new Xilinx site. In any case, I seem to recall that you need to go back to ISE 4.2 in order to have XC4000 support. It would be nice if someone at Xilinx could dig up the old "classic matrix" info and post it for reference.

Thank you for those links. I just want to make anyone using them aware that the forums have a tendency to add cruft to the end of links pasted in line with the text. At least in FireFox, when I click most of the links I get an extranous %A0 at the end. In the forums it's best to either paste a link on a separate line, or to use the "insert link" tool to attach the link to a piece of inline text. When you come across a link in the forums that doesn't work, you generally get redirected to the Xilinx support page. To work around this in FireFox you need to first "copy link location", then paste it in the address (URL) bar, then delete the extraneous characters before hitting Enter.

Thanks for the information. I was not aware that cruft gets added to links in forums.
Hence, duly noted and modified the above answer :)
