Set up Xilinx IDS environment for non-IDS tools

The installer for IDS 12.x or newer on Windows no longer sets up environment variables (XILINX, XILINX_EDK, PATH, etc) for running IDS tools during installation. Instead it provides a bootloader batch file that runs first to set up all required environment variables for the current session and then invokes the target application.
