Floating license install: installanchorservice.exe expects parameters

Following ug973, I tried to install the license management tools:

 

3. Run < Server Tools Directory>\<Tools Version>\win64.o\
installanchorservice.exe.

 

The EXE says it expects parameters:

 

Usage: installanchorservice publisher_name product_name

 

What is the proper way to install a floating license on a Windows system?

Hello @bklasscognex,

 

Please note that "installanchorservice publisher_name product_name" is related to an Activation Based licensing, which is no longer a default licensing method and will get obsolete very soon. The info in the UG973 regarding this will also get removed, to reduce the confusions for the users.

Please note that from April 2016, Xilinx has moved back to the Certificate Based licensing methodology, therefore please use a standard method of installing your floating license (i.e. Xilinx.lic license file and not Xiinx_License.xml). Since this is a Windows OS, then my recommendation would be for you to start the server by following the steps in the below Answer Record. That way, your floating license server will get automatically started each time you’d restart your PC.

If you have any issues in following these steps, please let me know.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Anatoli
