first of all I want to say that vivado just suckes in so many ways . first I downloaded vivado 2018.3 that worked for cople of monthes . suddenly it stopped working so I download the instelation again and now I even cant instell vivado at all . why is it so hard to build normal complier for xlinix products ? does xlinix enjoy losing costumrs for the INTEL ALTERA copration ?
pic of the download vivado that I downloaded :
and this the pic after the extraction of the winrar file of vivado :
after I press the xsetup nothing happnes , and the installion does not start , what I am doing wrong ?

They may not mind loosing users that can't even write well and don't state the exact problem they have... good luck with Quartus, if you think it's going to be much different :D

I work with a few companies compilers, and IMHO, they all suck,
its just the one your used to ,you know the work arounds / their methods.
Regarding your orriginal questoin aboou instalation and stops working,
Based on fact many thouands of installs are running world wide, this is unusual.
Is this on windows or Linux, which version of the OS ?
( BTW: as you see, I have terrible typing, but mine is down to stupidity and dsylexia , and no spelling checker on some machines I use )
Back in the old days, there used to be a "fight" between the LMtools used by Xilinx, Mentor, Cadence and altera that cause d me no end of headachs , having to run mutliple tools. But top be honest I have not seen that for a good decade now,
The other thing that used to cause problmes, was the path string in windows. 250 character limit, and the 32 bit file structure, but since we have all been 64 bits this is a thing of the past.
Im going to take the easy step, and suggest that you install onto a clean machine,
I know thats no answer, but it does sound like its your machine / setup thats the problem.
Let us knwo how you get on,

That happens sometimes. Usually because you have a background task slowing down your machine.

well I tried your soltion but it does not work, the question is why I cant install new versiom of vivado?
here is the pic of vivado that I downloaded
and here is the pic after the extraction :
after I press xsetup nothing happnes ... what to do ?

A couple of things, it does say dont use this versin unless you need these certain devices,
You should be using
but having said al lthat,
The precious install you say worked till it suddenly stoped,
Xilxin does not randomly update its tools on your machine, so the root cause is your machine,
I'd not think any number of re install attempts would do anythign till you have fixed you machine.

Hello @tomerpolsky123 ,
You are trying to install an update 1 of 2019.2, which can only be applied on top of 2019.2.
Since you don't currently have 2019.2 installed, 2019.2.1 (i.e. Update 1) can't be applied, hence you are seeing this behaviour.
My suggestion is, please obtain the unified webinstaller 2019.2 and execute it. Here is the link to it:
Once done, enter your User ID and Password and then select an edition of Vivado you are planning to install. Then see if the download and installation process begins for you and if you can then successfully install 2019.2 or not?
Hope this helps.
