licence problem

Jump to solution

Hi everybody,

 

Im using XPS 10.1 SP3 with ML507

 

until now i generated bitstream with the hard_emac core with now problems..

and today ive got the next ERROR:

 

ERROR:Xst:1484 - A core is unlicensed ! ERROR:MDT - Aborting XST flow execution! INFO:MDT - Refer to C:\Projects\EDK_Projects\Custom_lwIP_ml507\synthesis\hard_ethernet_mac_wrappe r_xst.srp for details Running NGCBUILD ...

I dont think that my licence is over because when I start a new project with the BSB, near the EMAC core there is a open lock with a $ symbol in it.. 

Do you what is the problem?

and.. maybe the licence si really over?

Hello.

For hard temac there is no license requirement. For soft temac you can download a permanent license from http://www.xilinx.com/member/xps_ll_temac_perpetual_eval/index.htm.

But i think, seeing your errors, that its not the poblem of license. 

Its something related to permissions on your PC. XPS is unable to make any changes in your project folder.

Best of luck.

Hi Prateek_bhatt

 

thanx for your answer.

 

Im using hard temac, and i create my project with the BSB.

when i generate bitstream without the temac core or make some changes it works fine... it seems that its not a permissions to the project or something like that..

however.. the error says:

 

ERROR:Xst:1484 - A core is unlicensed !


so maybe its a problem of licence?

I am wondering whether you might be the victim of the same problem I (and others) encountered at the start of July.  For full details please check out the thread

 

http://forums.xilinx.com/xlnx/board/message?board.id=EDK&thread.id=9595

 

If this is indeed your problem you should find one of the workarounds described in that thread will allow you to proceed.

Copy in a text file and name it as "xps_ll_temac_soft_core_permanent_eval.lic" and then paste it in your installation directory as in "D:\Xilinx\10.1\EDK\data\core_licenses" and also paste it in

"D:\Xilinx\10.1\ISE\coregen\core_licenses". Generate your bitstream once again. See if it works. No need to remove other temac licenses to incorporate this one.

Best of luck.

This does not seem to work in my 10.1 EDK environment with a V2.00a version of the Temac.

I get the following complaint from the license manager:

Also broken in ISE embedded 12.3 now. The patch license doesn't help.

Sigh..

Re: licence problem

I can't really comment on this - my 10.1.3 EDK environment only seems to come with version 1.x of the TEMAC.  Perhaps that's part of the problem - maybe TEMAC 2.x only works with more recent versions of the EDK (although I note that that a later post says that there's a problem with 12.3 as well).  Therefore it may be that the licence workaround described in this thread is specific for TEMAC 1.x under EDK 10.1 and doesn't extend to later EDKs and/or later versions of the TEMAC core.

 

The only other thing I note is that the output you posted mentions the soft_temac_wrap_v2 feature instead of the hardware TEMAC, and my understanding is that the licence issue referred to in this thread related only to the hardware TEMAC (which ordinarily does not require an explicit licence).  Perhaps the problem is that for some reason your system is trying to use the soft core instead of the hard core.  This may in turn have something to do with using TEMAC 2.x under EDK 10.x.

Re: licence problem

It's a known bug in all recent versions:

http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/29828.htm

 

The problem was that the fix didn't work.

 

Xilinx support got me up and running though, after adding the patch license I had to run this command to refresh the license command:

 

xlicmgr reset -v

 

Now I can actually create the EDK netlist.

 

I still get a warning about the hardware core license being an eval only, but the bug fix indicates that I can ignore that one.

Re: licence problem

I am running into the same problem right now, it is a bit annoying that a problem existing for over 2 years has not been properly addressed:

 

ERROR:Xst:1484 - A core is unlicensed !
ERROR:MDT - Aborting XST flow execution!
INFO:MDT - Refer to
   C:\Projects\EDK_Projects\Custom_lwIP_ml507\synthesis\hard_ethernet_mac_wrappe
   r_xst.srp for details

I downloaded the license file posted by , and run the reset command for the Xilinx license manager.

Unfortunately, the problem remains exactly the same. Anyone an idea if there is at the moment another workaround?

 

BTW.: I am using Xilinx 10.1.03 and I get the same error message on both, Linux & Windows XP.

 

Many thanks,

Richard

Found a solution that worked for me, I post it here and hope that it might be useful for some other people that run into the same problem.

 

Go to:  http://www.xilinx.com/getproduct.

 

Get license for: LogicCORE, Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC, Evaluation license (renewal necessary every 4 months)

 

Save it at: <Xilinx_PATH>/EDK/data/core_licenses

Name License as: temac_<year>-<month>.lic

 

Good luck!
