Application version > License version: 2011.06 > 2011.02


The key information in the message above is the line that states "Application version > License version: 2011.06 > 2011.02"

This issue is caused by an ISE software version newer than the version limit in the license file.In the example above, the ISE Design Suite13.2 has a version limit of 2011.06, but the license only allows software with a version limit of 2011.02 or earlier to run.

The version limit date indicates the month when the support contract expires. The support contract entitles a user to update the software with any version of that software released on, or before, the version limit month. If you attempt to run a version of the software released after the version limit, the license does not enable this version to run.

For more information on "expiration date" and "version limit date", please see: (Xilinx Answer 33770) and (Xilinx Answer 35022).
