Why Vivado latest version can not support old version design? How to solve it?

Now I'm using the vivado 2017.2. I download the example design from Xilinx website. However,many designs were developed in old version vivado. When I open it for example some scripts .tcl file.Failure occured and Tool indicated me to use old version.Then upgrade in 2017.2 version. But many example designs maybe designed by 2014.1,2015.2 or 2016.4 and son on. Should I install these version vivado at the same time? Obviously, it is very inconvenient. How to deal with it?

Thank you in advance.

Hello @nanjing2002,

 

Can you share links for designs, for which you couldn't find their latest versions (Vivado 2017.2 versions)?

Ashish

@ashishd For example,https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/51779.html. Many design example were based on the old version.
