2013.1 Install - Failure in shortcut Setup.bat -batch when "Xilinx Design Tools" folder exists

Description

When I run 'shortcutSetup.bat -batch' to install icons on my desktop which point to a network install, if I already have a "Xilinx Design Tools" folder in the program menu, the install fails.

A dos box opens and displays an error message saying: "Application is running in batch mode..... Program Group name is already in use....Installation failed"

However this generally displays too quickly to read.

Solution

The pop-up message is as follows:

"Application is running in batch mode..... Program Group name is already in use....Installation failed"

  • The message should be displayed until the user dismisses it, otherwise it is impossible to read.
  • If the "Xilinx Design Tools" group already exists then batchxsetup should default to the next available name (e.g. "Xilinx Design Tools 1"), give a warning message and continue.

This was fixed in the Vivado 2013.3 installer.
