Xilinx Vivado download pain

(1/2) > >>

Kilrah:
Sooo... I've kind of fallen in love with the "new" combined CPU+FPGA devices that have come around when I found out about the Xilinx Zynq, and have bought myself (privately) a Digilent Zybo to "play" with as it could fit the bill pretty well for a product a company I work with is evaluating options for.
Now it's all well and good, BUT... I've been stopped dead because doing anything with it requires downloading the Vivado suite, which is apparently export-controlled, with an "automated system" that is supposed to validate your details to let you download it. Except for me it doesn't, without any given reason.

Contacting support online is impossible given that... you have to go through the same process before you can. Tried their forums and all I got was a mod giving me the same link that is given after the verification failure and is of no help, and who then promptly ignored my reply to go on with a generic "has your problem been solved? Please mark the issue as solved if it has" post - NO it hasn't!

Has anyone had similar trouble? I assume it's because their thing has no idea about private users or small companies, and only checks against a list of multinationals... About to give up on the whole thing because they can't seem to care...  :palm:

Try logging out of the Xilinx website. And then, try the download, and it will prompt you for your password. Download for DocNav worked for me when I did it this way!  :-//

Kilrah:
When I'm logged out and click a download link that brings me to a login page, I login, I get redirected to the export verification, I click submit, and it says compliance verification failed.

But given you're in the US that doesn't apply to you in the first place, as there's no "export" involved you wouldn't have to go through that.

kendalll:
That's frustrating!
