Licensing - Invalidated license after VMware uninstall


I hadXilinx softwareinstalled and running on a machine that was running VMware. I then uninstalled VMware which invalidated my license and I can no longer run ISE software. What can I do to revalidate my license?


The license you were using was most likely locked to your Host ID that was created by VMware, and that ID was deleted when you uninstalled VMware. You will need to go to the Product Licensing page and change the Host ID associated with the license. In order to do this go to Xilinx.com and then to Support -> Downloads. From here you should click on "Get Required License File" on the right side next to "Enablement." You can also get to the Product Licensing page by following this link: http://www.xilinx.com/getlicense

Click on the "Manage Licenses" tab. Select your license and then click "Modify License." Change the Host ID to your current Host ID.
