2014.1 Install - Installer hangs when installing Microsoft VC++ redistributable runtime libraries

Description

In Windows 7 , the installer hangs when installing VC++ runtime libraries, as shown in the following figure.

Solution

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 (xcredist_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.
