In ISE 10.1, each executable has a wrapper executable that sets up the environment. The Fatal Error comes from the communication between the wrapper executable and actual xlicmgr executable. The error occurs when looking for the FLEXlm license cache locations.

The error will not occur if a valid license is found.
