2014.1 Install - Installer fails to start. When launching xsetup from a command window, the message "Error loading native libs" is received.

Description

When I try to install Vivado Design Suite 2014.1 the installer fails to open.
If I run xsetup from a command shell it returns the following error:

Error loading native libs. 
Please refer to the log file for more information.

Solution

If the above message is received,  check the system PATH to see if windows/system32 library files can be found.

This error has been seen if invalid path characters (e.g. < # % etc...) are included in a directory path before the windows/system32 library files in the PATH environment variable.

The Vivado 2014.2 Installer has been updated to be unaffected by the user PATH.
