If you are trying to specify the location of a license server for a Floating License (for example, "port@computer_name"), then you will eventually encounter a window from the FLEXlm license manager stating:
"Error at Create Dialog."
This has been seen on systems using Windows 98, NT and 2000. To work around this problem, set the environment variable as follows:
where "port" represents the port number in the TCP protocol from which the server communicates the license. "Computer_name" is the name of the license server on which the Floating License resides.
The xilinxd_LICENSE_FILE variable is set in the same way as the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable on the appropriate Windows platform.
However, it is mandatory that the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable is also set appropriately.
