2014.2 Install - Error during execution "D:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local\Temp\xinstall\xsetup.exe". The system cannot find the file specified

Description

I am trying to run the "Windows 64: Vivado 2014.1 Web Install Thin Client" (Xilinx_Vivado_SDK_2014.1_0405_1_Win64.exe), however the installation will not start.


I am receiving the following error:
 

Error during execution "D:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local\Temp\xinstall\xsetup.exe". The system cannot find the file specified.


Despite the error message, the file exists at the given location and is actually executable.

Solution

This error happens when the installer is run by a user account with spaces in its name.

The space in the TEMP path causes this error.

This issue is fixed in Vivado 2014.3.
