Starting with XACT 5.0, the workstation license codes found in the file $XACT/license/license.dat are platform independent (e.g. "APR", "PPR") while before they were platform specific (e.g. "APR-SUN4", "PPR-HPPA"). However, AHDL2X does not read the platform-independent license (the feature name for which is "XABEL") and gives an error similar to the following even though XABEL is licensed:
Fatal Error 0250: *** Error [XLM:AUTHORIZATION_FAILURE] Authorization for XABEL-SUN4 failed: no such feature exists
Since the new license daemon still understands the older platform-specific codes, the workaround is to use those codes for XABEL. Users who don't have such codes can contact Customer Service.
