When I open the Vivado License Manager (VLM), the Manage License Search Paths pane shows the XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE and LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variables.
If either of these variables has a directory path listed that ends with a slash or backslash, the licenses within that directory are not found.
For Example, if I enter the path below:
XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE = C:\Users\anyuser\lics\
VLM will not find the license.
However, if I enter the following:
VLM finds and displays the features of all license files found in C:\Users\anyuser\lics.
