Licensing problems with Basys2

Hello,

 

I'm trying to test out my Basys2 with the free Webpack ISE. After installing I downloaded a license online and opened it with the license manager, but I get this error when I try to compile:

 

 

ERROR:Map:258 - A problem was encountered attempting to get the license for this
   architecture. 

Design Summary
--------------
Number of errors   :   1
Number of warnings :   0

Process "Map" failed

 I have no idea what is going on and I can't seem to get a foot on the ground.

Hi,

Can you attach your license file and xinfo here?

In order to generate xinfo, please follow the steps below:

• Run Xinfo.exe from start menu start->Xilinx ISE design suite->Accessories->xinfo system checker. It takes some time to generate Xinfo file.
• Check the common folder in Xilinx ISE_DS folder for Xinfo file.

Thanks,
Deepika.
Thanks,
Deepika.

Ok I added the files. I should also mention that I used a schematic to test my board.

Hi,

 

The license which you attached is Vivado webpack license. 

 

This does not support ISE tool.

 

In order to use ISE tool you need to generate ISE webpack license.

 

Thanks,

Deepika.

Kinda the sae thing, I just got my basys 2 and I already downloaded vivado 14.4 and I got the same error:[Common 17-345] A valid license was not found for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7z010'. Please run the Vivado License Manager for assistance in determining which features and devices are licensed for your system.

 

I have no idea on how to use the license manger. I attached a lic file.Do I even need vivado, I"m running windows 8 64 bit, should I download 14.7 ISE?
