Vivado 2014.3 Can't apply Evaluation license !

Hi,

 

I download Vivado2014.3 and try to apply 30-days Evaluation license!

When I connect to xilinx license website by vivado license manager tool, I got website display as the attached file.

 

1) Certifcate Based Licenses just have 3:

 ISE WebPACK license

PetaLinux Tool License

Vivado HLS Evaluation License

 

Which license support  Vivado RTL systhesis/implementation/write bitstream?

 

2) Activation Based Licenses is grayed out. I can't access them?

 

What should I do to get 30-days evaluation license?

 

Thanks,

Cathy

Yes you shou;ld be usiing the 30 day evaluation license for Vivado for RTL to bistream.

This is under teh activation based licenses.

 

For Vivado 30 days eveluation license refer http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2014_1/ug973-vivado-release-notes-install-license.pdf 
(chapter # 5)

Re: Vivado 2014.3 Can't apply Evaluation license !

vivado webpack will help you in designing,implementing & generating the bitstream.
So you can generate the license for webpack. Only limitation is you will be having less device/architecture.
Check page 15 for the architecture supported by webpack & with evaluation you can target all the architecture but this license is valid for 30 days.

So if you targeting the webpack architecture then it is better to generate webpack.

Thanks

Hi Cathy,

 

You need to generate Activation based license (Vivado webpack).

 

What is the OS you are working up on? It looks like even though you connected to Licensing site using VLM you see that the activation based licenses are greyed out.

 

1. Open Command prompt
2. Navigate to <Vivado_installed_directory>\Xilinx\Vivado\2014.1\bin

3. To create activation license request, run the below command. This creates a HTML file.

 

                xlicclientmgr –cr test.xml

 

Open the HTML file and click on next. Generate the desired activation license.

See if this helps. If you face any error please post the same here.

 

Thanks,

Deepika.

Thanks,
Deepika.

Re: Vivado 2014.3 Can't apply Evaluation license !

Hi Cathy,

You are using Vivado License Manager and still observes that activation licenses are greyed-out. There are two reasons for causing this issue.

1. You are not using supported OS. See supported OS section in the following user guide: http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2014_1/ug973-vivado-release-notes-install-license.pdf

2. Trusted Storage was not present on the machine.
Run this command by following below steps to create trusted storage:
a. Open Command Prompt
b. Navigate to <Vivado_installed_directory>\2014.1\bin
c. command: installanchorservice.exe xilinxd Vivado-Software
d. Then generating the license from Vivado License Manager or steps provided (command line flow) by Deepika in earlier post.

Thanks,
Vinay
