2012.2 Vivado IP Flows - Checking license status shows "Contacting License Server" error

Description

In the Vivado IP Catalog, I select an IP and then right click and choose the "License Status" option. 

The License Status dialog displays a "Contacting License Server" error with no further information.

Solution

This issue only occurs in Vivado 2012.2  for IPs that do not ship a design Linking (simulation) IP license (for example the Reed Solomon Decoder).

In Vivado 2012.3 the license status dialog has been fixed to correctly show license status "unknown".
