2013.4 Vivado - Vivado reports incorrect success message if synthesis fails because of non-availability of license


I do not have a valid license for Vivado Synthesis on my PC.

After synthesis, I receive the pop-up message "Synthesis successfully completed"

However the message in the log window is:

Attempting to get a license for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7k70t'
WARNING: [Common 17-348] Failed to get the license for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7k70t'

ERROR: [Common 17-345] A valid license was not found for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7k70t'. Please run the Xilinx License Configuration Manager for assistance in determining
which features and devices are licensed for your system.
while executing
"synth_design -top bft -part xc7k70tfbg484-2"
(file "bft.tcl" line 30)
INFO: [Common 17-206] Exiting Vivado at Tue Nov 05 11:36:09 2013...


The pop-up message is invalid. 

The Vivado console indicates that there was an error (License not found) during synthesis and the flow is, correctly, unable to continue.

The issue is fixed in Vivado 2014.1.
