Make It Easier to Determine Current Xilinx Compile Tools Version, and Distinguish Between Xilinx 12.4 and Xilinx 12.4 SP1

Presently, the Xilinx Compile Tools do not appear in the MAX technical report or NI License Manager. As a result, to determine the version, users must go to Add/Remove Programs in the control panel to determine which versions they have installed. It would be great for troubleshooting if the Xilinx Version could be implemented into the MAX technical report. 


In addition, the Compile Worker states that the version of Xilinx used is 12.4, regardless of whether you are using 12.4 or 12.4 SP1. It would be useful for the compile worker to note which version it is using. Specifically, often the compilation chooses the compile tools based on what it was compiled with previously. When upgrading to 12.4 SP1, the user may think the compiler automatically uses the new compile tools and has no visual cue to verify the compile tools version used.
