2014.1 Licensing - Xilinx Licensing Configuration Manager (XLCM) is not included in the Vivado 2014.1 install. How do I manage my licenses?

Description

I do not see the Xilinx Licensing Configuration Manager (XLCM) in the Vivado installation. 

How do I acquire new licenses or check the current license status?

Solution

In Vivado 2014.1 the Xilinx Licensing Configuration Manager (XLCM) has been replaced by the Vivado License Manager (VLM).

VLM can be opened in any of the following ways:

  • From the Windows Start Menu select Xilinx Design Tools -> Vivado 2014.1 -> Manage Xilinx Licenses
  • From the Vivado IDE select Help -> Manage License or Help -> Obtain a License Key
  • Run the vlm script <installRoot>\Vivado\2014.1\bin\vlm.bat (Windows) or <installRoot>/Vivado/2014.1/bin/vlm (Linux).
