@arda.shah,

 

You version limit i.e. 2016.07 will only support till Vivado 2016.2. For newer versions, you need new license.

Refer this AR for details on version limit:

The version numbers are a bit confusing. 2016.07 means that it'll support everything up to software released in July of 2016 (ie 7th month of 2016).

 

Vivado versions are not based on months; Vivado 2016.4 was released in December, so it would require a license for "2016.12". If I remember correctly Vivado 2016.3 only made it out in November, so it would require a license for "2016.11". Since your license only covers 2016.07, you can't use tools newer than Vivado 2016.2.

How long the newly acquired license is valid (during a period of time) ?

Normally the licenses are one year, so if you bought one now it'd expire in 2018.01 (which would get you through to Vivado 2017.4).
