2016.1 Licensing - WebPACK indicates that it is looking for and finds a license although license checks have been removed


In Vivado WebPACK 2016.1, the license checks software tools (Synthesis, Implementation, Simulation, Etc...) have been removed. 

However, the log file still shows that a license check is being done.

For Example:

Attempting to get a license for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7k70t'
INFO: [Common 17-349] Got license for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7k70t'

Is this expected behavior?


This is expected behavior.

The license check was removed, but to keep the Licensing API in alignment with Vivado WebPACK and other Vivado editions, the messaging was left in.

As long as a WebPACK device is used the "Got license for feature ..." message should always be returned.
