additional xilinx compilation tools dvd


It's not corrupted on the server that I have access to... I'm working to get the version on the deployment server taken down, and the correct version uploaded. Thanks for your patience. Again, if you need the tools immediately, will be able to provide them for you. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Using the DVD from 2012 DS1 is much faster than to download 1.8G!!! Thanks!

Hello everybody,


I tried to install LV2013 DS2 and I have the same problem.

I cannot find any DVD that is recognized as the correct 'Additional Xilinx compilation tools'

I tried the following package downloads:

- "NI LabVIEW 2013 FPGA Module Xilinx Tools 10.1" downlodable Here

- "LabVIEW FPGA Module Xilinx Tools 10.1" downlodable Here

- "LabVIEW 2012 FPGA Module Xilinx Tools 10.1" downlodable Here


None of them worked, so I had to install xilinx tools using update service.

Is there anyone that installed those tools from a National Instruments portal download?

Thank you,

That DVD is only shipped to you if you have a current SSP with the LabVIEW FPGA module.  Depending on your license setup, it could be shipped seprately.

We currently have an SSP with the LabVIEW FPGA module, and we have not received yet the physical DVDs for LV2013, so we decided to download DVDs directly from the portal.

We were able to install the LabVIEW but 'additional xilinx compilation tools dvd' is asked during setup, is there any download available from National Instruments site of this DVD or we have to wait for the physical DVD set?

Hi Saketa,


You can download the compilation tools from the following link. The link will be in the related links section (Bottom of the page) and you will need to be signed in with your National Instruments profile to be routed directly to download page:

Below is the link that Luis was talking about.


Compatibility between Xilinx Compilation Tools and NI FPGA Hardware


If you have an active SSP and a network connection, you do not even need to install the Xilinx tools, since they are rather large. You should be able to access the ni cloud compiler free of charge as well, which may work for an immediate solution which does not require installed Xilinx tools to compile FPGA code.
