Foundation 2.1i, 3.1i - cannot find license file, express crashes, but environment variable is set

Description

If LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable is set but the license manager insists that it cannot find the license file, check for commas in the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable list. This has even been known to crash FPGA Express and Project Manager.

Solution

Remove the commas, or replace with semi-colons if necessary.

The variable should read : LM_LICENSE_FILE=license1.dat;license2.dat;license3.dat

It should not under any circumstances contain any commas.
