4.1i Install - A Foundation Aldec uninstallation removes the existing license.dat file in $xilinx\data

Description

Keywords: install, uninstall, license.dat, removes

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I uninstall the 4.1i tools, the <$Xilinx>\data\license.dat file is removed.

Solution

The uninstallation program is incorrectly removing your license file. Before uninstalling your Xilinx 4.1i software, we recommend that you move all FLEXlm license files to a directory outside of your Xilinx software tree (such as C:\licenses). After moving your license files, remember to change the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable so that it points to the new location.
