2014.1 Licensing - Vivado License Manager (VLM) does not report the license location for all features


When Vivado License Manager (VLM) is opened I can see many of the licenses I expect and the location of the file or server where they reside. 

However, some features are shown without the location.

Why is the location not shown?

How can I find out where the licenses are coming from?


This can happen if a license file is found in the c:/flexlm directory but it does not have a .lic extension (.dat for example).

This issue has been fixed in Vivado release 2014.2.
