Enter the following command at the command prompt:

vivado_lab
Tip: To run vivado_lab at the command prompt, set up your environment using the following script:
C:\Xilinx\Vivado_Lab\2023.x\settings64.(bat|sh)

You can open the Vivado Lab Edition from any directory. However, AMD recommends running it from a writable project directory, because the Vivado Lab Edition log and journal files are written to the launch directory. When running from a command prompt, launch the Vivado IDE from the project directory, or use the vivado_lab -log and journal options to specify a location. When using a Windows shortcut, you must modify the Start in folder, which is a property of the shortcut. Failure to launch from a writable project directory results in warnings and unpredictable behavior from the tool.
