Vivado 2018.1 unable to run as administrator?

There is some bug during Synthesis which reports the following:

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finished RTL Optimization Phase 2 : Time (s): cpu = 00:01:26 ; elapsed = 00:01:25 . Memory (MB): peak = 0.000 ; gain = 0.000
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can't get time (Fatal error in ..\abktimer.cxx:146)
The random seed for this run was 4294967295

 

 

To solve this issue running as administrator seems to fix the issue.  At least this is the case with vivado 2017.2

When vivado properly runs as administrator as for the 2017 version I see the following message when activating the "run as administrator" windows option.

which hitting yes activates vivado thereby bypassing this synthesis error. 

 

However when running 2018.1 the same fashion does not produce this message.  Also setting vvgl.exe to always run as administrator also creates a new error:

Is there some other way to open Vivado 2018.1 as administrator or fix this error message?

Re: Vivado 2018.1 unable to run as administrator?

You haven't said what version of Windows you are running.   I'm guessing Windows 10, which is semi-notorious for having application problems after updates.   I would try installing Vivado 2018.1 in Adminsistrator mode..   (i.e. run the installer as Admin).      There are some weird work arounds available for Win10 (if that's what you are using).

 

i.e.  https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/69908.html

Oh sorry about that,  Windows 7.

I did try re-installing 2018.1 in administrator mode but arrived at the same problem.

Hi @afgarrido,

 

can you try with uninstalling visual C++ redistributable for visual studio 2015 and install it from https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=48145 on your machine and then check?

 

Make sure you restart your machine after installing it and then check.

Re: Vivado 2018.1 unable to run as administrator?

I uninstalled visual C++ redistributable for visual studio 2015, restarted

re-installed visual C++ redistributable for visual studio 2015 restarted

and attempted to run vivado 2018.1 with administrator but arrived at the same issue.  

 

Somehow vivado will get to this error during synthesis: 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finished RTL Optimization Phase 2 : Time (s): cpu = 00:01:25 ; elapsed = 00:01:25 . Memory (MB): peak = 0.000 ; gain = 0.000
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can't get time (Fatal error in ..\abktimer.cxx:146)
The random seed for this run was 4294967295

 

but can be solved if I run as administrator...  unfortunately I'm still unable to run vivado 2018.1 as administrator.   I've been getting by using 2017.2 as adminstrator however most of my builds have already been created using vivado 2018.1

Is there way to be sure I am running 2018.1 correctly or a solutions to the abktimer.cxx error?

Re: Vivado 2018.1 unable to run as administrator?

To anyone having this problem I believe it was something to do with the company's security software.  Some updates to that have fixed the issue from happening again.  Talk to your IT department if this is happening.  Just FYI
