5.1i ISE - MGLS Licensing Error: "(<license server>): No server for this feature (-3,121)" is reported when a Leonardo Level 2 license is used through ISE


General Description:

I have a Level 2 license for Leonardo Spectrum, and the ISE TCL scripts are calling commands that are not valid for the Level 2 license. This causes the following errors:

"LeonardoSpectrum Level 2 - 2002b.21 (Release Production Release, compiled May 16 2002 at 05:56:02)

If you have created an ISE Leonardo project that failed synthesis once, "set _old_read TRUE" in the TCL script created by ISE will cause Leonardo to use analyze/elaborate during the _gc_read procedure. If you comment this out (by using a # at the beginning of the line), reading with Level 2 licenses will no longer be problematic.

Note that you still cannot run the TCL script through ISE; instead, you must run the edited TCL script when LeonardoSpectrum is in stand-alone mode. Once you have completed Synthesis through Leonardo in stand-alone mode, you must create a new ISE project and choose a design flow of type "EDIF" that uses the EDIF netlists created by LeonardoSpectrum.
