Unable to install Vivado 2014.4

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I've tried to install Vivado 2014.4 on my 32 bit windows 7 m/c. I want only the 30-day trial version but unable to install the same. Please find below the error message am getting. What would be the problem associated with this??

 

Is there any other version which is supported on 32 bit win ???

Hello @gayathri_11,

 

With 30-days Trial licenses (please note that 30-days trial is different to 30-days Evaluation license), you will be able to target every Xilinx device and run all Xilinx applications, except for bitstream generation, for 30 days.

 

Is this what you are looking for or perhaps you may want a 30-days Evaluation licenses instead (i.e. with eval lic, you will be able to target every Xilinx device and run all Xilinx applications, including the bitstream generation, for 30 days.)? If so, please obtain this from www.xilinx.com/getlicenses

 

This error message that you've shared with us would normally indicate that you may have already generated your trial.lic and the second copy can’t be obtained/applied.

In the latest version of Vivado, a new/better message is getting populated now.

 

The behavior of the first radio button "Start Now! 30 Day Trial (No Bitstream)" is intentionally different from the other 4 radio button choices because a trial license does not need to be obtained from the Xilinx Product Licensing site. Instead, the trial.lic simply needs to be copied into the .Xilinx directory. And that is what would normally happen when you click on Connect Now button.

 

If you open your View License Status, do you see this is listed in the table? These days, with the latest Vivado release, this would normally get copied to C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Roaming\XilinxLicense\ folder.

Back with 2014.4, I believe this was getting copied into the .Xilinx directory (e.g. ~/.Xilinx/trial.lic).

 

Anyhow, the above is just as an FYI.

To resolve your issue, I would say all you need is a 30-days Evaluation licenses instead of a trial one, and this will solve your problem.

 

If you have any questions for us, please let us know.

Kind Regards,
Anatoli Curran,

@gayathri_11

 

Can you login to this link and see if you have a trial license in your account : getlicense

If you don't have it, you can try using the Evaluation license instead.

Thanks,
Nupur
