We need to support some older designs that use the CoolRunner 9500 CPLD's. On the older PC's with W7, we can run ISE 14.7 without issue. But our newer computers are W10. From what I read on the Xilinx site, 14.7 will not support these CPLD's when the OS is W10 (seems silly). And the project files for 14.7 are not usable with older ISE's like 7.x, which appear to run with W10.
Is there a version of ISE that will support these CPLDs and work with both W7-32 and W10?
And what older versions of the ISE can work with the project files that 14.7 has created?

Ok I'll look into using 10.1. I'm actually using 7.1 with W10 currently, but if 10.1 uses the same file format as 7.x then it would be nicer to get a newer interface.

Just to close this out, 10.1 did not work for us, crashing all the time. Looks like our final solution is to use 7.1 ISE for both W7 and W10. Then for Impact we are using 14.7, since 7.1 won't work on the newer OS's.
