Install - Vivado batch installer fails in Windows PowerShell


When I attempt to install Vivado 2015.1 from the command line in a Windows PowerShell, the install fails at the End User License Agreement (EULA) stage:

For Example:

>C:\temp\Xilinx_2015.1\bin\xsetup.bat -b Install -a XilinxEULA,3rdPartyEULA,WebTalkTerms -e "S" -l C:\xilinx\test_dir

Copyright (c) 1986-2015 Xilinx, Inc. All rights reserved.

You have to accept the EULA to proceed with this installation. To accept the EULA, specify the option --agree XilinxEULA,3rdPartyEULA,WebTalkTerms

usage: xsetup [-a <arg>] [-b <arg>] [-c <arg>] [-e <arg>] [-h] [-l <arg>]
Xilinx Installer - Command line argument list.
-a,--agree <arg> Agree to the required terms and conditions. [XilinxEULA,3rdPartyEULA,WebTalkTerms]
-b,--batch <arg> Runs installer in batch mode and executes the specified action. [ConfigGen, Install, Uninstall, Add, Update]
-c,--config <arg> Properties file defining install configuration
-e,--edition <arg> Name of the edition that should be installed.
-h,--help Display this help text.
-l,--location <arg> Specifies the destination location of the installation.
-x,--xdebug Run installer in debug mode

Using "-a" or "--agree" makes no difference.


In order to run a 2015.x Vivado batch install on Windows, you will need to run from a standard cmd.exe command shell in Administrator mode.
