Hi Juan,
  1. 2014b HDL Coder is compatible with Vivado 2013.4.
  2. In 2015a HDL Coder, there is a shipping example about how to add Zybo platform to the HDL Workflow Advisor: Link to the example
  3. You can create an IP core using "IP Core Generation" workflow in HDL Workflow Advisor.
Thanks, Wang

Hi Roger, In HDL Workflow Advisor Step 1.2 "Set Target Interface", In the table "Target platform interface table", do you have one of your port assigned to "AXI4-Lite" interface?
There is a bug in R2013b MATLAB that at least one port must be assigned to "AXI4-Lite" interface in "Target platform interface table", or else Step 4.1 "Create Project" will fail on project creation. This bug is fixed in R2014a MATLAB.
Thanks, Wang
