Vivado 2019.2 ERROR: [Common 17-70] Application Exception: JVM: Can't create JVM - ErrorCode: -3

Jump to solution

I just installed Vivado 2019.2 on RHEL 7 and get the following error:

ERROR: [Common 17-70] Application Exception: JVM: Can't create JVM - ErrorCode: -3

This was not an issue on Vivado 2019.1. I've consulted AR #51659 to no avail, even when allocating ridiculous amounts of memory to the JVM (e.g. -jvm Xmx4096m). Any ideas?

Problem solved. For some reason, our 2019.2 installation had several executables that only had executable permissions for root. After these files were given group/other executable permissions, the Vivado GUI launched as expected.

Hello.

Would you mind telling which files were installed with root only access for execution ?

I have the same issue and struggling to resolve it.

Thank you

Hello @sbussieres ,

Seems like you are using an older download version of Vivado 2019.2.

If you have an older download (file name *_2019.2_1024_1831. You can find this out from Vivado->Help) or have this issue, it is recommended to re-download the 2019.2 tools and perform an uninstall/re-install.

Please check this AR for further details, if needed:

Hope this helps.
