Hello, all, I hope someone can help,
I used to have my Xilinx Foundation/ISE up to date, but I let the support lapse, as all the new work seemed to be aimed at devices I was not going to use in the forseeable future.
I had Foundation running on an older Win 95 system, and just stored the upgrade boxes. I got A win 2000 system set up, installed ISE 4.2i, got my licenses for ISE and Foundation from Xilinx, and everything seemed to be working. Now, I'm trying to seriously learn VHDL, and so I need to get FPGA Express working. This used a different license scheme, as it was licensed from Synopsys. I can't figure out how to get a license file from Xilinx, or convert my old license, or whatever it takes. I have an old license from the Win 95 Foundation, but of course the disk serial numbers are different.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make this work? I really can't expect Xilinx to help, as I dropped my support contract.
Thanks very much in advance,
