Issue Details

I am installing LabVIEW 2018 on Windows 10 and when I select the FPGA module, it forces me to take the Xilinx for ISE module too, then when I want to start the installation a message tells me that it is not possible to install Xilinx for ISE and forces me to uncheck FPGA and Xilinx to continue.

What is the issue ? How to compile FPGA VI without compilation tool ?

Solution

Xilinx compilation tool for ISE are not compatible with Windows 10, so only installs Vivado that allows you to do FPGA compilation (see the LabVIEW FPGA 2018 Readme )
You will find in the document Compatibility between Xilinx Compilation Tools and NI FPGA Hardware  the targets supported by Xilinx compilation tool for Vivado.
For the other target supported by Xilinx compilation tool for ISE, it will actually go through the compilation on the Cloud .
