Licensing - Do ISE and Vivado WebPACK tools require a FLEX license?


Do ISE and Vivado WebPACK tools require a FLEX license?


Vivado 2015.x and earlier requires a certificate based WebPACK license.

Starting in Vivado 2016.x onward, a license is no longer required for WebPACK.

To access a WebPACK license (for 2015.x and prior versions), run the Xilinx License Configuration Manager (XLCM) for ISE or the Vivado License Manager (VLM) for Vivado.

When XLCM or VLM starts, either will allow you to generate and then copy or install the WebPACK license into the proper location.
