2013.4 Licensing - Vivado HLS license Error when using a USB Dongle - [LIC-104] Missing required feature [VIVADO_HLS]

Description

When I launch Vivado HLS 2013.x, I get the following error.

@E [LIC-104] Missing required feature [VIVADO_HLS].
             INFO:Security:60 - The XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable is set to 'c:\.xilinx\v_sys_edition.lic'.
INFO:Security:63 - The LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable is not set.
INFO:Security:68 - For more information or for assistance in obtaining 
 a license, please run the Xilinx License Configuration Manager
       (xlcm or "Manage Xilinx Licenses".)
INFO:Security:68a - user is user, on host HOST_ID.
INFO:Security:15 - A feature for HLS was found but is for the wrong hostid.
ERROR:Security:14 - No feature was available for 'HLS'.

I am using a USB dongle and the license works correctly for other tools, such as Vivado 2013.x synthesis and implementation..

Solution

The Vivado HLS 2013.x is not correctly recognizing a valid license that uses a Flex-9 (USB dongle) hostID. 

An available work-around is to acquire a license targeting a MAC address as HostID or use a floating license.

This issue has been fixed in 2014.1.
