2017.3 - Vivado does not launch with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update


After installing the Windows 10 Fall Creators update (version 1709), when I try to launch Vivado, it fails or crashes.

There is either no message or a Microsoft pure virtual functional call message displayed.

Microsoft Visual C++Runtime Library
Program: C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2017.2\unwrapped\win64.o\vivado.exe
- pure virtual function call


While this update for Windows 10 is not officially supported with Vivado 2017.3, the following work-around is available:

  1. Navigate to (Vivado Installed Directory)\2017.3\bin\unwrapped\win64.o
  2. Backup 'vivado.exe' by renaming it to 'vivado.exe.backup'
  3. Copy 'vivado-vg.exe' and paste it into the same folder.
  4. Rename 'vivado-vg - Copy.exe' to 'vivado.exe'

After the above steps are followed, Vivado will launch normally.
