No license for xc7s25

I have installed Vivado 2018 WebPack on Windows 10.

I can synthesize for xc7s50, but not xc7s25.

"A valid license was not found for 'Synthesis' and / or 'xc7s25'"

 

Then I tried to regenerate my WebPack license. I can only choose "ISE Webpack" and "Webpack 2015 and earlier".

 

What is wrong?

@uncle_tim

 

Since Vivado 2016.1, Vivado WebPACK doesn't need a license. Your issue seems strange since both the devices should be supported with WebPACK.

Can you share the xinstall.log present in the C:/Xilinx/.xinstall folder?

Thanks,
Nupur

Thanks for you anser.

 

This is the xinstall.log of 2018.1

BTW I had exactly the same issue with 2017.4.

Hello @uncle_tim,

 

See @samuelcotard 's workaround provided in the below forum topic:

 

https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Installation-and-Licensing/Vivado-2017-4-with-XC7S25/m-p/820212#M20394

 

Try updating your Vivado WebPACK edition to Vivado Design Edition perhaps, and then try again, and this should fix this licensing issue for you then.

Re: No license for xc7s25

Surprisingly the installation of design edition worked! I was not sure if it was really the new version or the different directory. The installer told me that 2018.1 already is installed and I had to choose a different directory. So I chose "c:\Xilinx2".

 

Then, just for fun I installed WebPack again on a different directory "c:\Xilinx3"  -> It worked.

 

Therefore, from my point of view, the answer is "install in a new directory"

Re: No license for xc7s25

Hello @uncle_tim,

 

When re-installing Vivado for the second time, indeed, sometimes the Program Group Entries don't get fully removed and after try re-installing Vivado once again, you'd then ses a message indicating that 2018.1 directory is already is installed and you'd then need to specify a new directory.

However, installing a Vivado design edition, I expected this to work, as it contains all of the devices, including Vivado WebPACK ones.

However, re-installing Vivado WebPACK edition which solved your original issue - to me, this would indicated that there was a potential corrupt installation of your previous Vivado WebPACK installation?

Anyhow, I'm glad that you've now managed to overcome this issue and is good to go now.

 

As your issue is solved, please mark an appropriate response as Accepted Solution (more info on this can be found here: https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/help/faqpage/faq-category-id/solutions#solutions), so  the topic can be completed then. We appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance and have a great day.
