Licensing - What is FlexNet Activation Licensing and how does it work?

Description

What is FlexNet Activation Licensing and how does it work?

Solution

FlexNet Activation licensing is an extension to FlexNet Publisher Licensing.

Instead of requiring a certificate-based license file to be present to authorize a machine, Activation uses a trusted area on the client or servers hard-drive to store the authorization credentials.

This trusted storage area will automatically be installed and initialized beginning with the Vivado 2014.1 installer.

When the Vivado tools look for a license feature, they are allowed to run if this trusted storage area contains the proper authorization.
