Vivado 2018.2 Strange characters in the menus

I just installed Vivado 2018.2 WebPACK. When I open the program all the menus are in these strange characters.Naamloos.png

I have tried installing again with the same result, anyone familiar with this issue?

Re: Vivado 2018.2 Strange characters in the menus

Hello @pieter9222,


What Operating System are you installing this on? Is it one of the Supported OSs that is listed in the User Guide 973:




If this is not one of the supported Operating Systems, then the issue is most likely due to this.

However, I can confirm that we had no one reported this issue yet, installing on a supported OS, so this is not a known issue. You are the first person reporting this behavior to us. Therefore, please let us know what exact OS is in your case? I believe this is Windows 10 and if so, what Region and Language Settings is currently on this OS? English/Japanese or some other Region and Language Settings? Can you confirm on this please?
