I am attempting to install Vivado 2017.2 on my Windows 10 Pro (ver 1703) laptop. I start the install, and I get the starting GUI screen. But that only stays for about 5 seconds, then the install window just disappears.
I also had other Vivado versions installed, but all of them fail to work and fail to un-install, since upgrading to ver 1703 (creators update) of windows 10 Pro. Are there compatibility issues with this version of Windows 10 and Vivado?
I tried to install other versions of Vivado as well, and the install also fails (tried 2015.4, 2016.2, 2016.4). In addition, I downloaded the latest version of Java, but that didn't seem to make a difference.
Any help would be appreciated.

2017.2 install worked fine on my Windows-10 laptop.
What you can try is to run the installation executable from a command-line console opened as Administrator.
First, it'll eliminate possible permission problems.
Second, it'll print log and give you some idea what's wrong.

I used to be able to run and install Vivado on my Win10 Pro laptop, but can't anymore.
So when I run the "xsetup.exe" from a admin command prompt, all it does it launch the GUI Install, which then crashes, and there are no message in the command prompt window.
Still just closes after about 5 seconds.

Thanks Evgeni, Batch mode install worked for me, and 2017.2 is now installed and running.
I don't know why the GUI portion of the install didn't work though.

In case someone else runs across this issue... This is a bit of a rabbit trail, but it may be your problem. I was experiencing the exact same problem as above, but I was referred to a Java bug around a couple of months ago, and thought they were not related.
Gives a description of how this folder is made. If you have this folder on your desktop, there is a known bug in many Java distros, that this can cause Java apps to fail. Yes, a folder on your desktop can make Java apps fail. I just deleted the folder and now I am able to install Vivado. Now I can drop my VM.
