30 days Evaluation License Synthesis Error

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I recently obtained a license file for the 30 day evaluation of Vivado 2015.3.  I have placed the license file in the .xilinx directory and on running license manager the license appears and indicates it is valid.  When trying to synthesise I get the following error:

 

[common 17-345] A valid license file was not found for feature 'synthesis' and/or device 'xc7a35t'.  Please run vivado license manager for assistance in determining which features and devices are supported for your system.

 

Any help appreciated.

Ok so that now works.  The question is why are you able to generate a certificate based lic file if it won't work?

Hello @dstlgsmith,

 

It seems the license is not properly installed on your system. Please check this video which has details about generating and installing activation based node-locked license

Which OS are you using?

Can you please run this command in tcl console:

report_environment -file env.txt

and share the output(env.txt) here?

Thanks,

My OS is Windows 7.

 

The license is a .lic certificate based one due to the machine not being connected to the internet.

 

I will run the sugested tcl commands and report back.
