Licensing issues with EncryptedWriter

Jump to solution

I just received a license for encypting HDL.  I have loaded the license and see a valid license of EncryptedWriter_v2 in Vivado's License Manager.  However when I attempt to encrypt a file as detailed in the "Creating and Packaging Custom IP" document I get the following error  

 

ERROR: [Vivado 12-3330] encrypt 1735: Failed to encrypt ''.test.vhd: You are not licensed to encrypt IEEE1735 [test.vhd]

Hi @jduchez,

 

Encryption license features are tied to specific Vivado versions. When requesting a license, include the exact version of Vivado (e.g 2016.3, 2016.4) for which a license is required.

 

But default, you should have a license for the latest version.

 

If you still need to work with 2016.3, please ask again using the email address from the AR#68071 specifying that you want to work with Vivado 2016.3.

 

Best Regards,

 

Florent

Hi @jduchez,

 

Did you check that you can see the license in Vivado License Manager?

Hi @jduchez,

 

I will try to do some test to reproduce your issue

 

In the same time

- A quick check: did you restarted Vivado after installing the license?

- Could you generate report_environment -file <path>/report.rpt and send me the file in private message?

 

Thanks,

 

Florent

Hi @jduchez,

 

I was able to reproduce your issue locally with an evaluation license. (We usually have internal licenses to test tool feature but sometimes they are different from the customer's ones).

 

It seems that there is an issue with the license

 

A Service Request has been created for you and an engineer will contact you directly.

 

Best Regards,

 

Florent

@jduchez,

 

Have you specified the license key using the -key option?

Refer page 90 of this link for the complete command for encrypting:
