Licensing - How can I reset the FLEX license cache?

Description

How can I reset the Flex License cache?

Solution

As licenses are located and used by FLEX, they are cached for faster access. If a cached license is removed or overwritten, it can sometimes be necessary to reset the FLEX license cache in order to get the current license.

To do this, enter"xlicmgr reset" in a command shell.

A separate cache is stored to allow Xilinx applications to use changes in the environment without needing to reload the application. To clear this cache do the following:

1) Go to your %HOMEDRIVE%/.Xilinx folder.

2) Delete the license_info.cache file.

On Windows systems, the following procedure can be used:

1) Start -> Run... and type 'regedit'

2) Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> FLEXlm License Manager

3) Edit/Delete the key for XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE/LM_LICENSE_FILE such that the old server is no longer referenced.
