System Generator: Error 0001: Fatal Internal Error

I'm trying to work through the System Generator Tutorials and I am getting the following error when I try to run one of the examples (Lab 1_1). Can anyone provide advice on how to fix this error? I have a permanent license for sysgen with a version limit of 2018.5. I noticed that I do not have any Xilinx environment or system variables set on my machine, could that be part of the issue?
