Licensing - "FLEXnet Licensing error: -90,313. Future license file format or misspelling in license file"

Description

Why do I receive the error?

FLEXnet Licensing error:-90,313

After merging a few licenses together, I am getting the following error:

ERRORS: /license/Xilinx.lic:line 215:Future license file format or misspelling in license ffile. The file was issued for a later version of FLEXnet Licensing than this 
program understands.
For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,
available at "www.acresso.com".
/license/Xilinx.lic:line 252:Future license file format or misspelling in license file.
The file was issued for a later version of FLEXnet Licensing than this program understands.

Solution

This error occurs when the formatting of the license file is incorrect. Usually, this could happen when the license has been edited manually.

So, from the above error messages, lines 215 and 252 are the lines where the formatting of the license file is incorrect.

Below is an example of one of the licenses where the formatting of the file is incorrect (i.e., the vendor string is divided into 2 lines without the use of the "\" line-continuation character which is necessary here to break up lines).

Incorrect vendor string:

VENDOR_STRING=License_Type:Bought;joe.smith@acme.com,rio_log_io,ip,permanent,_17
4232969_176244305_210555203_568 \

Corrected vendor string:

VENDOR_STRING=License_Type:Bought;joe.smith@acme.com,rio_log_io,ip,permanent,_174232969_176244305_210555203_568 \

Fixing the formatting of the license file on those lines, then saving the license file and restarting the server will resolve the problem. In most cases, it is best to make a clean start by retrieving the original licenses issued from Xilinx or other vendors.
