Licensing - The Vivado License Manager (VLM) does not display licenses found in %HOMEDRIVE%\.Xilinx

Description

The installer runs Vivado License Manger (VLM) automatically at the end of installation.

However, it doesn't display any licenses that I already have in my %HOMEDRIVE%\.Xilinx directory.

Solution

This issue has been seen if the existing licenses are located in the %HOMEDRIVE%\.Xilinx directory and HOMEDRIVE is a mapped network drive.

The reason for this issue is that when VLM is launched during installation, it is launched in admin mode. 

If the HOMEDRIVE variable is set to a mapped drive the license information is not displayed for those licenses (%HOMEDRIVE%/.Xilinx) because the drives mapped by users are not accessible.
