I believe I have follwed the floating license installation instructions in: http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/5332.html
however, when I launch ISE I get an error saying "a license was not found for the 'ISE' feature." XLCM gets launched to help find the license.
Attached are screen grabs of what I see when XLCM is started after not finding the floating license on pcthw-PC and
what I see when I start the license manager. I think it means that it is running
I believe that I should be able to install the tools on any machine and point to the machine that is running the license
server (and has the license file on it) and run the tools.
Any thoughts on what the problem might be?

update: I ran lmtools and saw that the license manager had stopped running for some reason.
I opened a xilinx DOS window and ran lmgrd. This opened 2 other windows, but when I went
back to the client and clicked "Set" for the XILIXD_LICENSE_FILE, it picked up the floating licenses.
My new problem is that while the orignal error message is gone, I am unable to open or
create a project. I get an error that says _pn.exe stopped running. I'll start a new thread for this.
