AR# 44015 Where do I obtain an registration code for an older ISE Design Suite version?

This answer record describes the necessary steps to obtain a registration code for an older ISE Design Suite software version, that is, version 3.x through 10.x.

Prior to the current FlexLM licensing scheme adopted in ISE Design Suite 11, Xilinx used registration codes to manage software release versions 3.x through 10.x. 

The registration codes were either 25, 16, or 12 digit numbers. 

You can access and obtain registration codes for these older ISE Design Suite versions from the Xilinx Download Center or the Xilinx Licensing Site.

NOTE: The next procedures assume that you have already set up a user ID and password on xilinx.com. 

You will need an account to obtain registration codes.
