Just got done installing vivado, quit license manager, then setup license file, then re-entered license manager by running
to confirm xilinx sees license okay, then exit license manager.
But there are no shortcuts on desktop nor is there a xilinx vivado tool under start programs list.
So what file do I point to, to run vivado??

You should see Vivado launch shortcut on desktop and also it should be present in Windows program list.
The other way is to execute the setting64.bat file from command promt and run "vivado" to launch vivado GUI

Hi @DiamondBound ,
During Vivado installation, there is an option at the last stage to create desktop shortcuts for the tool. It is enabled by default. But if you had disabled it, you won't see any shortcuts in Desktop.

Problem occurs because I don't have admin privileged, so the install is inhibited with a dialog box requesting admin to give their credentials (username password) for the process to continue.
I did this but did-not-select-install-for-all-users, so xilinx tries to put the
"shortcut on desktop (of the admin) and also it should be present in Windows program list (of the admin)"
But since the admin credentials are setup as a local-admin there is no environment ie desktop directory for me to copy the shortcut nor windows program list.
