Licensing - XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE or LM_LICENSE_FILE pointing to a location with a slash at the end does not find the license

Description

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:
 
XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE=C:\Users\anyuser\lics
 
VLM finds and displays the features of all license files found in C:\Users\anyuser\lics.
 

Solution

The trailing backslash is not allowed when specifying a license directory using the XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE and LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variables.

Please remove the trailing backslash at the end of the path.
