Bitstream creation is disabled for trial licenses

Hello

I purchase evaluation board with vertex6

I download ISE 12.1, install full version, make 30 dayes evaluation, get license. But, when i do in XPS generate bitstream i get:

INFO:Security:65 - Your license for 'ISE' is for trial use only.
INFO:Security:69 - Bitstream creation is disabled for trial licenses.


WARNING:Bitgen:26 - Bitgen only supports DRC but not bitstream generation on
   this device.  This condition can occur if there are problems obtaining a
   license to run bitgen or if the design targets a device which is Early
   Access.

 

And, as result, i didn't get the system.bit file. I dont use trial version, i use evaluation of 30 days. Looks like a bug??? or i misunderstand something?

You are right, the eval license should allow for bitstream generation.

  - Make sure the license actually says evaluation in the license file.

  - If you have had a trial license previously, make sure that it is not being found some how.  Clear the license cache if needed.

 

If you verify that the eval license is the only one being found and you still have the problem, please open a technical support case.

Thanks, it works.

 

For the nnew users of ISE the process looks like:

1. Install ISE and other components

2. Close Manage license application - you will do it later

3. Go to C:\.Xilinx

4. In the directory you will see files: 

license_info.cache

Xilinx11.1.lic

Xilinx.lic

delete all of them

5. Open "Manage Xilinx Licenses" application (Start->Xilinx-> Accessories)

6. Acquire a license tab

7. If you new user and wish use studio for 30-days for evaluation use next steps:

Choose "Start 30 days evaluation" radio button

Click "Next" button

8. Register yourself

9. create 30 days license (not webpack)

10. save the license on HD

11. In "Manage Xilinx Licenses" application go to ""Manage Xilinx Licenses" tab

12. Press "Copy License" button

13. Load your license

14. if you want check if it working, go to XPS->create new project->remove all peripheral devices->click on "Generate Bitstream"-> wait 5 minutes for next 4 lines magic sentences in output window:

 

 

Creating bit map...
Saving bit stream in "system.bit".
Bitstream generation is complete.
Done!

say  "Jesus Christ" or "Baruch Ashem" or "Alla Ahbar", depend on your religion :-) !!!

The 30 day trial worked!  The webPack did not.

 

Thanks for this!
