I'm being told "The activation licensing section below is disabled either because Vivado License Manager was not used to initiate this web session or because the Activation Request ID has already been used to generate a license. Please see http://www.xilinx.com/tools/faq.htm for more information."
HOWEVER, note that I'm really using the Vivado License Manager and the "Connect Now" button to initiate the session. What am I doing wrong?

I've been working at the same issue for a week or so, and just come across a solution.
If you grab a .lic file by accident, the license manager won't let you grab a .xml on the same "request". Unfortunately, the tool's default (vlm and xlicclientmgr) is to reuse the existing request, which is endlessly frustrating. The solution is to force xlicclientmgr to create a new request. I did it like so:
xlicclientmgr -cr request.xml reference="Some_unique_name"
This produces an html file with a brand new "request", which you can open in a browser and follow the prompts to get a Vivado license.xml file, avoiding the messed up one.
Hope it helps,

I'm getting this same error, and the above suggestion didn't work.

64-bit Linux specifically Fedora 20.
The command works fine and generates the xml and html files, but then when I load the html file and go to the website, the boxex are greyed out and I get the error.

Fedora is not supported OS with vivado 2014.1.
We have recently seen the similar issue where the activation license are being greyed out because of unsupported OS.
After switching to supported OS the issue got resolved.
You can find the supported OS list in the following user guide page no:14

I had exactly the same problem of being unable to obtain a license for Vivado 2014.2 because the check box in the license management web page was greyed out.
This was on a supported Linux platform - 64 bit SLED 11 SP3.
Jeff Taylors solution solved the issue.
Thanks for that. Probably save me a week or so !
