Licensing - Can I update my software during the Contract/Warranty period?

Description

Can I update my software during the Contract/Warranty period? Will the update be enabled with the current license I am using?

Solution

A license enables software or IP with a version limit equal to or before the version limit of the license. Therefore,the FLEX license works with any release versions, updates, or service packs of the software that are released before the version limit has passed.

The date for a software release is based on the official release date set by Xilinx, not when you actually try to install the software. Therefore, you can install and use any product that was released before the end of the version limit, even if the version limit has already passed.
