In our company, we're are using the KC705 evaluation board since 2013 without any issues.
Recently, I installed the new version of Vivado (2020.1).
I have no issues running builds for the xc7k160tfbg676-2 but once I want to build a project on the KC705 evaluation board, I receive the following error:
I've also attached a screenshot of the license manager "Vivado_License_manager.png".
What could be the issue?

This is probably a better question for the licensing/install board - maybe a mod can move it.
Your version limit is red and 2020.2 (Feb 2020) so I'm assuming you are trying to run Vivado 2020.1 and your current license doesn't support it:

Also note that the 7K160T is a WebPACK part so it doesn't need an Edition license - while the larger 7K325T isn't supported by WebPACK.

Hello @Nico ,
As correctly indicated by @barriet , your current license isn't valid for any newer versions of Vivado. More details can be found in the AR33770.
So, the option are
1) continue with an older version of Vivado that your license is valid with
2) if you need to work with the newer version of Vivado, then you'd need to buy either a new Vivado license, or
3) you can purchase a new KC705 and this will come with its new device locked (XC7K325T) node-locked license file.
However, indeed, the issue here is, your current license is not valid for any newer versions of Vivado.
Hope this helps.
