AR# 1063: Foundation - Key stops working on BAS and BSV packages
Foundation - Key stops working on BAS and BSV packages
Keywords: BAS, BSV, key
General Description: After working for some time, the Foundation 6.0.0 Project Manager will not start and the following message appears:
*** Error [XLM:KEY_WRONG_VERSION] Your key is not authorized for this version of software. Contact Xilinx to obtain a new password.
If you have a BAS package (no VHDL), you can work around this error by removing the Xilinx key from your PC before starting the Project Manager. The only time you will need to attach the Xilinx key is when you compile an ABEL file.
If you have a BSV package, removing the key will give you access to all Foundation tools except the VHDL compiler. To regain access to VHDL, you must call Xilinx Customer Service to receive a new password for the programmable key.
