How to Crack Xilinx ISE 14.1 License and Use It for Free
Xilinx ISE is a software tool that allows you to design, simulate and implement digital circuits using Xilinx FPGA devices. It is widely used by engineers, students and hobbyists who want to create their own custom logic designs.
However, Xilinx ISE is not a free software. You need to purchase a license from Xilinx or its authorized distributors to use it legally. A license can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars depending on the features and device support you need.
But what if you don’t have the budget or the willingness to pay for a license? Is there a way to crack Xilinx ISE 14.1 license and use it for free? The answer is yes, but it is not easy or risk-free. In this article, we will show you how to do it step by step, but we also warn you about the possible consequences and drawbacks of doing so.

Cracking Xilinx ISE 14.1 license is a violation of the software’s end-user license agreement (EULA) and intellectual property rights. It may also expose your computer to malware, viruses or other security threats. It may also compromise the quality and reliability of your designs and cause errors or failures in your FPGA devices.
If you want to use Xilinx ISE legally and safely, we recommend that you purchase a license from Xilinx or its authorized distributors. You can also use alternative software tools that are free or open source, such as Quartus Prime Lite Edition, Vivado WebPACK Edition or GHDL.
To crack Xilinx ISE 14.1 license and use it for free, you will need the following:
- A computer running Windows 7 or later (32-bit or 64-bit).
- Xilinx ISE 14.1 installation files (available from Xilinx website).
- A crack tool called XILINX_LICENCE_CRACKER (available from MediaFire).
- A USB flash drive with at least 4 GB of free space.
- A Xilinx FPGA device and a USB cable to connect it to your computer.
Follow these steps to crack Xilinx ISE 14.1 license and use it for free:
- Download and extract the XILINX_LICENCE_CRACKER.rar file to your computer. You will get a folder called XILINX_LICENCE_CRACKER with two files inside: LICENCE.dat and LICENCE.exe.
- Copy the LICENCE.dat file to your USB flash drive. This file contains the cracked license information that will allow you to use Xilinx ISE without paying.
- Install Xilinx ISE 14.1 on your computer by running the setup.exe file from the installation files. Follow the instructions on the screen and choose the default options.
- When the installation is complete, do not launch Xilinx ISE yet. Instead, go to the folder where you installed Xilinx ISE (usually C:\Xilinx\14.1) and find a file called xinfo.exe.
- Right-click on xinfo.exe and choose Run as administrator. A command prompt window will open and display some information about your computer and your Xilinx FPGA device.
- Look for a line that says “Disk Serial Number” and note down the value next to it. This is a unique identifier of your USB flash drive that will be used to generate a valid license key.
- Close the command prompt window and go back to the XIL
