Licensing - Can I update my software after the Contract/Warranty period is over?

Description

Can I update my software after the Contract/Warranty period is over?Does an update work with my current license?

Solution

A license only enables software or IP with a version limit equal to or before the version limit of the license. Therefore, the FLEX license does not work with any version, update, or service packs of the software that are released after the Version Limit passes.

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.
