Licensing - Creating an activation license request gives: ERROR: flxActCommonInit result 1 Unable to find FNP security runtime shared object


I am trying to create a floating license request using the command on Windows:

cd C:\Tools\Vivado\2014.1\bin\unwrapped\win64.o
xlicsrvrmgr.exe -cr request.xml 

I am receiving the following error message:

ERROR: flxActCommonInit result 1   Unable to find FNP security runtime shared object.
Exit(2) FLEXnet initialization error.


xlicsrvrmgr.exe requires the FNP security runtime shared object.

The required DLL, libXLicSrvrMgrFNP.dll, is located in the <Vivado Install>\lib\win64.o directory (for example C:\Tools\Vivado\2014.1\lib\win64.o) or in the directory where the windows_flexlm_v11.11.0_201406.zip license utilities were unarchived.

Add this directory to the PATH variable and rerun the xlicsrvrmgr command.

For Linux the library file is libXLicSrvrMgrFNP.so and is located in the <Vivado Install>/lib/lnx64.o directory or in the directory where the linux_flexlm_v11.11.0_201406.zip license utilities were unarchived.

Set "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" to include this directory.
