Vivado 2015.4.2 update : licence is now not valid?

Jump to solution

I have been using Vivado 2015.4

This morning I updated to 2015.4.2

 

Now i get the following message :- 

[Common 17-345] A valid license was not found for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7z045'. Please run the Vivado License Manager for assistance in determining
which features and devices are licensed for your system.
Resolution: Check the status of your licenses in the Vivado License Manager. For debug help search Xilinx Support for "Licensing FAQ".

 

I have a node locked licence that came with a zc706 dev kit  that is now more than one year old.

should it not work with this minor revision update?

 

If not how do i restore to version 2015.4 as it doesn't seem to be available via the website

 

Thanks for any help that you can give on this..

 

Dean

Hi @deanbruce,

 

Please post your license file here.

For using Vivado 2015.4.2, you need version limit as 2016.02, while you need 2015.11 as version limit for using Vivado 2015.4.

Refer this AR for details: http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/33770.html

 

Install Vivado HLx from this link:

Thanks,
Nupur

@deanbruce,

 

It is decided by the version limit mentioned in the license(in your case 2016.01, which does not allow you to use 2015.4.2) .

Use this link ( http://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.html/content/xilinx/en/downloadNav/vivado-design-tools/2015-4.html ) to install 2015.4 .

Thanks,
Nupur

I would recommend you to renew Vivado license and use latest which is Vivado 2016.2
