2014.1 Install - Download fails immediately with, "There was an unexpected error creating ... "


During the Vivado 2014.1 install process, once I've selected my desired options, the download fails immediately.

An error message similar to the following appears. 

Error Downloading Files
There was an unexpected error creating C:\Users\my_user_name\AppData\Local\Temp\xinstall\bin\..., system error message was NA.


This issue will occur for users that do the following:

  1. first attempt to install from local archive (This option is always available in Vivado 2014.1 install even though most users have not previously downloaded the archive at this point) 
  2. specify a directory which is valid but that does not contain all of the required archives,
  3. then select the option to do a download and install.

The work around is to cancel and close the installation, then restart it. 

Select the Download and Install option, provide a user ID and password and complete the installation process as normal.
