Vivado 2018.3- can't launch as app on computer

Hi,

  I've just installed Vivado 2018.3.It doesn't come up as an app on my computer and there is no shortcut on my desktop even though I remember checking that option for a shortcut. Could someone please help. What do I need to run to get Vivado recognized as an app on my computer?


Thank you

Hi @vivienwwp,

to add shortcuts to the Start menu, run the networkShortcutSetup.exe executable.

This file is found under the .xinstall\Vivado_<version>\bin directory.

(For example C:\Xilinx\.xinstall\Vivado_2018.3\bin\NetworkShortcutSetup.exe.

For further details on this and more useful information, please see (UG973) (v 2018.3).

Hi @vivienwwp

Check anatoli's forum post in the below-mentioned thread for Microsoft redistributables and follow it accordingly.

And then reinstall your Vivado 2018.3.
