4.1i Licensing - A "Cannot find license for Constraints Editor" message appears when I open a top-level HDL project in Foundation


Keywords: license, cannot, find, Constraints, Editor

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I open a top-level HDL project in Foundation, the following message is displayed in Project Manager's message window:

"Cannot find license for Constraints Editor."


This message will occur if you are using the Base-Express version of Foundation. (This version does not include the Synopsys Constraints Editor.) You may ignore this error, and you can safely continue.

However, both the Express and Elite versions of the software include the Synopsys Constraints Editor, and the message above is the result of the license problem. If you are using either one of these Foundation software versions, please see the following Answer Records to enure proper license setup:
