AutoESL license does not work for Vivado HLS. If only the AutoESL license is available, Vivado HLS will issue "@E [LIC-104] Missing required feature [VIVADO_HLS]."
To verify which features (AutoESL, HLS, Vivado_HLS) are supported by your license, start Xilinx License Configuration Manager and check under the Feature's column or open your license file and search for the AutoESL, HLS, or Vivado_HLS.
Contact Xilinx customer service at cs_1@xilinx.com to verify entitlement if you cannot locate the license in your Xilinx licensing account.
