After editing your configuration file to reflect your installation preferences, you can run the installer. As part of the command line installer, you must indicate your acceptance of the Xilinx End-User License Agreement and Third Party End-User License Agreement, and confirm you understand the WebTalk Terms and Conditions.

WebTalk Terms and Conditions

The WebTalk Terms and Conditions, which you must agree to when running the installer, is below:

By indicating I Agree, I also confirm that I have read Section 13 of the terms and conditions above concerning WebTalk and have been afforded the opportunity to read the WebTalk FAQ posted at I understand that I am able to disable WebTalk later if certain criteria described in Section 13(c) apply. If they don't apply, I can disable WebTalk by uninstalling the Software or using the Software on a machine not connected to the Internet. If I fail to satisfy the applicable criteria or if I fail to take the applicable steps to prevent such transmission of information, I agree to allow Xilinx to collect the information described in Section 13(a) for the purposes described in Section 13(b).

When using the command line, use the command-line switch, -a or --agree, to indicate your agreement to each of the above. If one of the above is left out of the list, or the agree switch is not specified, the installer exits with an error and does not install.

Batch Mode Installation Using Single-File Download

This is an example of the command line for a typical new installation using a configuration file.
xsetup --agree XilinxEULA,3rdPartyEULA,WebTalkTerms 
--batch Install --config install_config.txt
If you want to use one of the Xilinx default edition configurations, you do not have to specify the --config option, but since the destination directory is included in the configuration file, you will be required to specify this on the command line.
xsetup --agree 3rdPartyEULA,WebTalkTerms,XilinxEULA 
--batch Install --edition "Vitis Unified Software Platform" --location "/home/Xilinx"

The above command uses the default configuration options for the edition specified. To see the default configuration options, use the –b ConfigGen mode as described above. The batch mode of the installer can also uninstall and upgrade (add additional tools and devices). For the full list of the options in the installer batch mode, run xsetup -h or xsetup --help.
