Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, SDK 2015.4 - Patch to correct MYVIVADO crashes/internal exceptions in SDK


When setting the MYVIVADO OS environment variable to apply a patch, the SDK GUI either crashes or throws an internal exception.

This can occur when using the Zynq UltraScale+ Processing System patch from (Xilinx Answer 65982).


A patch is attached to this Answer Record to resolve this issue.

  1. Close SDK if it is already opened
  2. Unzip the attached patch
  3. Replace the com.xilinx.sdk.sw_1.0.0.X.jar from <install location>\SDK\2015.4\eclipse\win64.o\plugins with the extracted patch
  4. Start SDK normally

If storage permissions do not provide access to the installation directory, an alternative work-around is to launch SDK from a separate OS terminal where MYVIVADO has been unset.

This issue is planned to be fixed in the 2016.1 release of SDK.
