I'm currently struggeling to get my license accepted by the Xilinx SDK 2014.1 - Vivado 2014.1 is working like charm only the SDK is always showing a popup telling me "License Error" "SDK requires an evaluation or full license. There is no cost.... Do you want to acquire a license now?".
I already followed all instructions and downloaded a *.xml license additionally to my already existing *.lic file which I actived through the license manager.
Please see the attached image captured from the license manager - it all seems ok. But still the SDK doesn't accept this as a solution.
Is there any special license now required for 2014.1 SDK? the 2013.4 was working... but on a different machine.

From the snapshot, it is clear that the license was installed properly.
Did you receive this error message when opening SDK standalone?
If yes, the answer is: SDK is supported for XC7Z010, XC7Z015, XC7Z020, XC7Z030 devices only with Vivado Webpack license.
Try out these steps:
1. Create a project in Vivado with the above mentioned device.
2. Then export it to SDK using File --> Export Hardware for SDK option and select the option "Launch SDK".
Please post your message if you still encounters the issue.

Thanks for your fast response Vinay,
I'm using a ZEDBOARD with the Z7020 and the related vivado board part template in my project.
At the moment I'm receiving the error when starting the sdk standalone - unfortunately since I updated the license vivado isn't starting the SDK anymore. I checked all boxes on export but nothing happens and the sdk isn't loading.
I struggeled from this issue a few weeks ago on a different machine, but couldn't figure out how to get it working. Suddently, a few restarts later it went all fine - but till today I don't know what went wrong.
In this case it seems the same issue to me. My procedure is:
1. Open implementation
2. Export hardware for SDK Option from Main-Menu/File/Export
3. Tick all Boxes and press OK
4. A Message box appears telling me that there is already an exported file for this module at the specified location and if I want to overwrite it?
5. Fore sure I want - so i select Yes
--> Nothing happens
If I'm starting the SDK Standalone which worked perfectly on my second machine I receive the following message
In the LOG the message is stated as:
ERROR: License Feature SDK is not av....
I'm not able to display the full message because the window is blocked by the popup.

Sorry, but this doesn't work either. I'm always having the implementation open, otherwise Vivado doesn't allow to export the bitstream (include). Finally i set up a new project and tried the export again - this time the SDK opens but still shwoing the following message:

So, nobody really has a solution to this problem?
Is there any logfile I can create, or *.ini text I can post?

I had the same problem when installing 2014.1 SDK as a standalone application. Then you need an activated based license. See my blog for more information. If you install Vivado and SDK together you can continue use your old license.

Are you guys running SDK from a VM? I'm having exactly the same problem when trying to run SDK2014.4 from VM (VMware player, Windows guest OS). Vivado works well though. Tried returning the license to Xilinx and generate again, multiple times. Still failed.
