Licensing - xlicsrvrmgr fails when creating a license request with error: flxActCommonInt result 20

Description

I am trying to create a floating license request using the command below:
xlicsrvrmgr -cr request.xml
However it returns the error message below:

Error: flxActCommonInt result 20 
FNP Service not installed on the machine..
Exit (2) FLEXnet initialiasation error.

Solution

Below are the steps to follow to overcome this issue:

1. Change the UAC settings (Control Panel --> System and Security --> Change User Account Settings) to LOW.

See the screen grab below:

3. Run the command:
installanchorservice.exe xilinxd.exe Xilinx-Software
