Issue Details

I'm trying to compile an FPGA bitfile, but my compilations always fail even using an example bitfile.
The Xilinx log has the warning:  Default location for XILINX_VIVADO_HLS not found. How can I fix this?



This message could be shown on some versions of  Xilinx Compilation Tool for Vivado as indicated in  AR# 64639 2015.1 Vivado - When I start Vivado from a shell, I see: WARNING: Default location for XILINX_VIVADO_HLS not found: You can safely ignore this warning
