2017.1 Vivado - Launching Vivado gives: java.io.FileNotFoundException: ...AppData\Roaming\Xilinx\Vivado\2017.1\vivado.xml

Description

When I launch Vivado 2017.1 I see the following exception:

java.io.FileNotFoundException: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Xilinx\Vivado\2017.1\vivado.xml

Solution

This exception will occur if the vivado.xml file has been set to have read only permissions.

This issue has been fixed in Vivado 2017.2.
