Instructions for first-time users of the Xilinx M1 or Alliance software or who do not have a fully authorized license file from Xilinx.

The Xilinx Allince 1.4 software comes with a temporary license that is not fully functional; however, most software functions can be used. This allows you to evaluate the software without risk as well as use the Xilinx software right out of the box.

For Windows 95 and NT users: (Node-locked, Uncounted)

- When the software is installed, the license will automatically be copied to the specified location if a file by the same name (license.dat) does not already exist.

- If the file was not copied to the system, you may manually copy the license.dat file from the root directory of the core tools CD to the desired location on the system or network.

- Once the file is copied to the system, an environment varaible called LM_LICENSE_FILE must be created or appended to point to this license file. If one does not exist, define a new environment variable in the Autoexec.bat file (Windows 95) or System Properties -> Environment (Windows NT). The varaiable should be similar to:

set LM_LICENSE_FILE =c:\flexlm\license.dat

- If the variable is already set for other software, the Xilinx license path may be appended to the existing LM_LICENSE_FILE vaiable as follows:

set LM_LICENSE_FILE =c:\flexlm\license.dat;c:\any_dir\other_lic.dat

- For Viewlogic Workview Office 7.3.1 and earlier versions, specify the path as follows (not for WVO 7.4 and later):

set LM_LICENSE_FILE =c:\flexlm\license.dat,;c:\any_dir\wvo_lic.dat

(NOTE: In all examples above, it is assumed the Xilinx license file was copied to c:\flexlm\license.dat. If it was placed elsewhere or renamed, substitute the appropriate path and filename in place of c:\flexlm\license.dat.)

If this environent variable is correctly set up and is pointing to a valid Xilinx license file, please see (Xilinx Answer 2547) for debugging suggestions.


For UNIX users:

When the software is installed, a temperary license will automatically be copied from the CD if the directory exists; therefore, a file using the name given in the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable does not exist.

- If the file was not copied to the system, you may manually copy the license.dat file from the root directory of the core tools CD to the desired location on the system or network.
- Once the file is copied to the system, an environment variable called LM_LICENSE_FILE must be created or appended to point to this license file.
- Xilinx suggests that the following line(s) be added to the .cshrc file or source script for the Xilinx tools:

if $?LM_LICENSE_FILE then
setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE </path/to/xilinx/license>:${LM_LICENSE_FILE}
else
setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE </path/to/xilinx/license>
endif

If you are not using CSH or TCSH as your shell environment, please see (Xilinx Answer 2499) for information on proper environments.

If this environent variable is correctly set up and is pointing to a valid Xilinx license file, please see (Xilinx Answer 2547) for debugging suggestions.

Instruction for users who have previous software versions or a fully authorized license file from Xilinx

The following instructions are for a customers who have been using the M1.3 software or who are re-installing A1.4:

If the software was working with the previous license, no changes are necessary for the license file or LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable. (If do not have a valid license for running the software, please see Resolution 2.)

If you have a valid license but your machine is not set up to use it, or if you are seeing licensing/security errors when running the Xilinx Alliance 1.4 software:

For Windows 95 and Window NT users: (Node-Locked, Uncounted)

- Copy the file to the system or connected network if it is not there already.
- Once the file is copied to the system, an environment variable called LM_LICENSE_FILE must be created or appended to point to this license file. If one does not exist, define a new environment variable in the Autoexec.bat file (Windows 95) or System Properties -> Environment (Windows NT). The variable should be similar to:

set LM_LICENSE_FILE =c:\flexlm\license.dat

- If this variable is already set for other software, the Xilinx license path may be appended to the existing LM_LICENSE_FILE variable as follows:

set LM_LICENSE_FILE =c:\flexlm\license.dat;c:\any_dir\other_lic.dat

- For Viewlogic Workview Office 7.3.1 and earlier versions, specify the path as follows (not for WVO 7.4 and later):

set LM_LICENSE_FILE =c:\flexlm\license.dat,;c:\any_dir\wvo_lic.dat

(NOTE: In all examples above, it is assumed the Xilinx license file was copied to c:\flexlm\license.dat. If it was placed elsewhere or renamed, substitute the appropriate path and filename in place of c:\flexlm\license.dat.)

If this environment variable is correctly set up and is pointing to a valid Xilinx license file, please see (Xilinx Answer 2547) for debugging suggestions.


For UNIX users:

- Copy the license file to the system or network if it is not there already.
- Once the file is copied to the system, an environment variable called LM_LICENSE_FILE must be created or appended to point to this license file.
- Xilinx suggests that the following line(s) be added to the .cshrc file or source script for the Xilinx tools:

if $?LM_LICENSE_FILE then
setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE </path/to/xilinx/license>:${LM_LICENSE_FILE}
else
setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE </path/to/xilinx/license>
endif

If you are not using CSH or TCSH as your shell environment, please see (Xilinx Answer 2499) for information on proper environments.

If this environment variable is correctly set up and is pointing to a valid Xilinx license file, please see (Xilinx Answer 2547) for debugging suggestions.
