2014.2 Licensing - Activation license downloaded as a .lic file instead of a .XML


I have previously generated an activation based license. 

When I open my license account on www.xilinx.com/getlicense the activation license appears under the Manage Licenses tab.

However, when I click on the Download license link or the Email License link, I receive a file named Xilinx.lic  instead of Xilinx.xml.


The content of the file is correct and in XML format. 

To load this license you must change the file extension to ".xml".
