AR# 63279: Vivado - Launching Vivado fails with Abnormal program termination (EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION)
Vivado - Launching Vivado fails with Abnormal program termination (EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION)
I attempt to launch Vivado on a Windows 64 bit machine and get the following error:
Abnormal program termination (EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION) Please check '...../bin/hs_err_pid<number>.log' for details
The Log file states the following:
Stack: no stack trace available, please use hs_err_<pid>.dmp instead.
Analyzing the .dmp file I see the following:

Running Vivado in 32-bit mode is successful.
This has been seen with Vivado version 2014.1 and later.
There appears to be an issue with FlexNet Licensing Service 64.
To work around the issue, follow the steps below:
(Before following these steps, close all anti-virus and other applications, specifically those that use Flex licensing).
Open msconfig.exe. You can open it from the start menu.
Select the services tab, then disable "FlexNet Licensing Service 64" by unchecking the select box.
Restart the system.
Invoke Vivado without invoking any other applications.
