I have a PC where I need to build an FPGA design using Vivado 2015.3 Webpack. I installed Vivado 2015.3 but in the licence solution center I am not able to generate a Webpack license. I have several Webpack licenses from last year when I click on "Manage Licenses" but I there is no item for creating new ones under the certificate based licenses.
I know that a license is not needed any more since Vivado 2016.1 (right?). Is this the reason that this license type cannot be generated any more also for older Vivado versions? Or is there a limit on Webpack licenses (I have three old Webpack licenses)? What do I have to do to obtain a License for the older version?

Thanks for your response but no, unfortunately the links do not provide a solution to my problem.
My problem in short: In the online Xilinx License Center it seems not possible to create a Vivado WebPack License (for a Vivado 2015.3 but also in general) . There is no problem with my local installation (besides that it does not have a license).

I also don't have the Webpack License listed under the Activation Licenses. A colleague of mine logged in with his own Xilinx account and he has the Vivado WebPack license item in his Certificate based license view and can generate it. So I don't know why it does not appear for me but we use the license generated by him now.

Nowadays we are giving a Vivado 2015 and earlier Webpack license under Certificate based licenses.
If your webpack license has version limit of 2015.09 or higher, then it should work for 2015.3 as well.
Refer this link for details: http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/33770.html
Can you post your webpack licenses here so that I can check if they can be used for Vivado 2015.3?

I created a Webpack License earlier this year, please find attached. But this has a disk ID in it, so I need a new one for my new installation of Vivado Webpack 2015.3 on another PC. Please find attached a screenshot of my view of the Xilinx Product Licensing Site. There is no Webpack License to select. A colleague of mine has the Webpack item to select under the certificate based licenses.

Please try installing 2016.x which does not require webpack license.

Is your query addressed?
Can you try installing 2016.x webpack as it does not require license?

Hi arpansur, nupurs,
Thanks for your responses.
I cannot use 2016.x as our firmware is a completely QA tested RC build with 2015.3 and so we have to build it with 2015.3 (but on another PC which needs this new licence). As I wrote, the sufficient workaround is that I use the licence generated by a colleague of mine. In my licencing center, the option still doe not exist.
