2015.1 Vivado - When I start Vivado from a shell, I see: WARNING: Default location for XILINX_VIVADO_HLS not found:

Description

When I start Vivado from a shell, I see the following warning:

WARNING: Default location for XILINX_VIVADO_HLS not found:

Why do I get this message?

Is there something wrong with my Vivado Installation?

Solution

This message will be issued in Vivado 2015.1 and 2015.2 if you install the Vivado Design Edition (not the Vivado System Edition).

The message can be safely ignored.  

Vivado HLS is not expected to be installed with Vivado Design Edition.  

However, the startup script incorrectly checks for its existence and issues the warning when it is not located.

This is scheduled to be fixed in Vivado 2015.3.


To avoid the warning message you could set an environment variable named XILINX_VIVADO_HLS to any value.

For Example:


set XILINX_VIVADO_HLS=1
