Description

On a Windows OS I am trying to set up a floating license using lmtools (flexlm_v11.11).

However I am receiving the following error message:

Error: Activation context generation failed for "C:\Licenses\Xilinx\xilinxd.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT,processorArchitecture="amd64",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8" could not be found.

Solution

This issue occurs when the Microsoft Redistributable package is not installed properly on the system.
 
To resolve the issue, install vcredist_x64.exe (Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Setup) from the Xilinx Installed directory (for example C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt64(64-bit) or nt (32-bit)).
