Vivado Floating License ONLY works on a Server!

      Our small business just purchased the EF-VIVADO-SYSTEM-FL. We spent $4295 for the floating license ($1300 more than the node-locked license version). As we tried to install the floating license, we discovered that the floating license must reside on a server! We don't have, need, or want, a server! Avnet refuses to take back the floating license version and trade down for the node-locked. This is really ridiculous. In the first place, ansys should have provisions for the floating license to work without a server. That is the way our Altium license and frankly every other floating license we have ever purchased has worked! Secondly, ansys should make it clear in the purchase description that the FLOATING LICENSE ONLY WORKS WITH A SERVER! Lastly, they should allow (either directly or through their distributors) for exchanges and returns of anyone who wants to trade to a node-locked version.

      Ansys is not the Vivado vendor.
