2017.3 Install - Attempting to reuse an install download for a second install fails with "At least one device must be selected." message when SoCs / Zynq-7000 is the only selection


I have run webinstaller and installed WebPACK with SoC devices only using the "Download & Install" option.

Now, I would like to use the downloaded files from this install to install the same configuration on other computers. To do this I run the xsetup from the download of the previous installation.

When I get to the device selection page, the Vivado installer GUI will not proceed. It displays a message saying "At least one device must be selected".

The Device selection window shows the Zynq-7000 selected and the SoCs partially selected, but Production Devices appear to be unselected.

If I select additional devices in the initial install, I do not see this problem. However, I would prefer not to use the additional space needed to install extra devices.


There are two ways to work around this issue.

  • Instead of doing an initial install, use the Download only option and then use the downloaded files to complete multiple installs.
  • Use the batch installer. Below is an example command line:
C:\intall1\downloads\Vivado_2017.3\bin\xsetup.bat -a "XilinxEULA,3rdPartyEULA,WebTalkTerms" -b Install -e Vivado HL WebPACK" -l H:\eda\install2
