Install - Vivado Installer hangs when installing Microsoft VC++ redistributable runtime libraries


In Windows 7, the Vivado installer (Version 2014.1 or later) hangs when installing VC++ runtime libraries, as shown in the following screen capture:





This issue was reported by a user but was not reproducible after the computer being used was rebooted.

From the log files it appears that the MS VC++ install task was starting two instances of vcredist_x64.exe.

To fix this, first open the task manager, and see if two instances of Vivado\2014.1\tps\win64\ vcredist_x64.exe are running.

If so, kill one of the processes.

If this is not the case, kill the hanging process (vcredist_x64.exe) to allow the main Vivado installation to finish, and then re-run the task after the installation has completed.

See (Xilinx Answer 60111) for information about re-running Post Install executables such as vcredist.exe.
