I installed 2014.3.1 vivado which came along with KC705 board which we bought. We got node locked license with that board and installed vivado and SDK 2018.1. Then SDK opened and didnt show any error. But as my vivado is 2014.3.1 i am unable to use 2018.1 SDK so i uninstalled SDK 2018.1 and installed SDK 2014.3.1 and tried to open but it is giving following error.
Then googled and searched in community and checked lot of things my license is fine n i found SDK has different license and can be obtain free but i didnt find any link in xilinx website in this case.
So pls let me clarify below points.
1) Why SDK 2014.3.1 doen't getting licensed although we have complete vivado license?
2) As SDK 2018.1 doesnt given any error i want to switch my vivado to 2018.1 from 2014.3.1, then can i use same license file for activating vivado and SDK?
3) If i want to use vivado 2014.3.1 then how can i solve this issue?
Please remind that i searched complete forum and did some of the solutions you made but it doesn't work in my case so im writing in a new thread. Please provide links if necessary...

Please note that SDK feature would be included in the purchased license file or in the Device Locked license that came with the board.
To me, for some reason, your license can't be detected.
What type is your license? Is it a Node-Locked or a Floating?
If you open VLM (Vivado License Manager), do you see an SDK feature listed?
Please note that this SDK feature is also included in the Vivado WebPACK (free) license file.
As now a days (from 2016.4 release of Vivado) Vivado WebPACK license is built into Vivado and users don't need to go now and generate this license, therefore, that is the reason why everything working in 2018.1.
If things are not working in 2014.3.1., that means the license can't be found. Therefore, can you please share your license file and also please send me your Xinfo report generated on the machine where you are seeing this licensing issue, for examination.
If you have any questions for me, please let me know.
Xinfo.txt can be generated by running the "report_environment –file xinfo.txt" command in Vivado TCL console.
