Cannot install ISE Win 14.7 on Windows 7 64-bit

Jump to solution

When I attempt to rune xsetup.exe I get an error dialog:
"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.  Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

 

Application event log:
"Activation context generation failed for "C:\Users\dlippman\Desktop\Xilinx_ISE_DS_Win_14.7_1015_1\xsetup.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Users\dlippman\Desktop\Xilinx_ISE_DS_Win_14.7_1015_1\xsetup.exe" on line 0. Invalid Xml syntax."

 

I don't know what sxstrace is, any clues to how I get this running?

 

Thanks,

Devan

Hello @dlippman,

Which tool/version are you using to unzip the downloaded file?
Did you compare md5sum value of the downloaded file with website value?

Thanks,
Vinay

Hello,

Please check installation process for all platforms for the ISE Design Suite tools in Chapter 3 from below release notes. It consists of the conditions you need to follow before starting the installation.

From ISE Design Suite tools in Chapter 3 :


•    Disable anti-virus software to reduce installation time.
- Good
•    Make sure you have the necessary privileges for the system on which the design tools will be installed. Some components, such as programming cable device drivers, require administrator-level permissions.
- Good, running as administrator
•    Close all open programs before you begin installation.
- Good
•    Make sure your system meets the requirements described in Chapter 2, Architecture Support and Requirements.
- Good, Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
•    If EDK is installed, make sure the installation is in a directory structure that does not contain spaces.
- Good, EDK is not installed
Note: The Xilinx Design Tools installers do not set global environment variables, such as XILINX, on Windows. To find out if this affects the way you run Xilinx design tools, see “Platform-Specific Installation Instructions.”
•    When running xsetup.exe from a 32-bit machine onto the network location of a 64-bit machine, the tools install the 32-bit executables onto that machine and not the 64-bit executables.
- Good, not installing from network

Microsoft Windows Installation
How you start installation depends on how you obtained the installation program. See Downloading the ISE Design Suite Tools for details on your options.
•    If you downloaded an installation file, decompress that file and run xsetup.exe.
- Uncompressed and arrived at OP
•    If you downloaded the installation file in multiple parts, decompress the file with the .tar extension and run xsetup.exe. You should not decompress any other files
- Good, Downloaded one file
•    If you received a Xilinx Design Tools DVD, load the DVD. If the auto-run feature of your DVD drive is enabled, the setup program should start automatically. If it does not, browse to the DVD in Windows Explorer and run xsetup.exe.
- Good, Downloaded one file

Hi,
Do you have Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable installed on your machine?

That was it, the MD5 did not match on the download.  I downloaded again and the installer is running.  Thanks

 

PS. download manager did report it completed. I wonder if it had anything to do with the download being interrupted and resumed?
