When I attempt to run Place and Route (PAR), I see the following message in the log:
ERROR:Par:424 - Invalid Installation. License could not be acquired.
Process "Place & Route" failed
This occurs if no license is found. Please ensure that a valid license file (.ui.dat) is located at <XILINX_INSTALL_PATH> (example: C:\Xilinx\10.1)
