I am using Vivado 2018.2 and have a ZC706 Evaluation Kit.
Starting a new project I can't find ZC706 among the board files. Looking in C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2018.2\data\boards\board_files I also don't see zc706 anywhere (the closest seems to be zc702).
Is there a place I can get the ZC706 board files from or do I need to use ZC702 files?

Can you try to add the 7 series zynq devices and see if anything changes. Here is the AR https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/60112.html
I can them in 2018.2. Please use the above steps to include them and it should be there.

For some reason if I try any of the options (also as Admin):
Then the below Xilinx logo pops up.
But after few seconds disappears again without anything happening.

This might happen if Vivado is running in the background. Generally it issues the warning.
You can try to close all the current vivado session and go to start> xilinx> add device and tools( run as admin).
You can also try to use web installer to install 2018.2 additional device. Here is the link

Thanks for your help @harshit
I tried the "Add Design Tools or Devices 2018.2" while having stopped Xilinx running in the background. But still get the same result (The logo pops up and disappears, but then nothing happens...)
Then I tried your link, but get the error that the file requested is not available.
Maybe I should remove the full Vivado and reinstall ? Just take really long...

When I copy and paste your link into the browser it brings me to the right place.
Unfortunately it does not work when I run the installation executable that starts than.
Looking thorough the installed Xilinx files I found that the zc706 folder is available under C:\Xilinx\SDK\2018.2\data\boards\board_files. But just copying that folder to C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2018.2\data\boards\board_files did unfortunately not yet solve my problem.
I also today installed Vivado on a (bigger) Linux machine and had to find out that I have the same issue there: no zc706 board files.
Is that because I am using in both cases the same Xilinx account for the download??

in below screenshot I copied manually the zc706 folder from the SDK foder to the Vivado folder.
But even though the files in the zc706 folder have similar structure as the other board files in C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2018.2\data\boards\board_files
Vivado doesn't pick up the zc706 and does not show the Board for selection.
I installed Vivado on two separate machines - one Windows 10, one Linux - and both show the same results.
Is there any way to fix this?
Thanks for any hints...
