Vivado 2018.2 WebPACK licensing

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

I have installed the WebPACK version of Vivado HLS 2018.2 and Vivado Design Suite 2018.2. For licensing I used "Vivado Design Suite: HL WebPACK 2015 and Earlier License". I openned the Vivado software and it looks like the following image:

Is this OK? It seems the software has not been activated properly because I see the software environment is different in the tutorials provided by different users in YouYube. For example, the following image shows the same software with different colors in some of the tabs:

Hi @arablu_m,

 

1. You do not need a license if you are targeting one of the WebPack devices in 'Vivado WebPack and Editions 2018.2'.

2. Which tool are you trying to access? HLS or Vivado? Both have different executable and environment.

3. Run synthesis with any compatible part of webpack and it should not throw any license error. Check Webpack compatible part, features and OS here (link).

@arablu_m

 

You would need Vivado WebPACK license only if you are using Vivado WebPACK 2015.4 or earlier(2015.2 in the tutorial screenshot).

But if you are using Vivado WebPACK 2016.1 or later(2018.2 in your case), you do not need a license.

 

The image in the tutorial is of Vivado 2015.2.

The GUI looks different in 2015.2 and 2018.2 because they have been upgraded in the span of 3 years :) 

 

I suggest you use the 2018.2 version of tutorials.

Thanks,
Nupur
