I am sorry though the procedure you outlined does not work.

When I enter the link https://licensing.intel.com/, in Microsoft Edge, it opens the link https://licensing.intel.com/psg/s/, which is the ‘Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center (SSLC)’ webpage. When I sign in, it opens the ‘Let’s Get You Registered for Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center (SSLC)’ webpage. This page has a ‘Next: Verify’ button. When I press this button, nothing happens

When I enter the link https://licensing.intel.com/, in Google Chrome, it opens the link https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/partner-alliance/access-denied.html and nothing can be done.

Is there perhaps something wrong with the link https://licensing.intel.com/? Can you ask you IT people to check?

AR_A_Intel (Employee), have you verified the links that you sent me i.e. https://licensing.intel.com/ and https://licensing.intel.com/eval-free-licenses?

Both go to the 'Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center (SSLC)' webpage where you need to sign in. After signing in, the 'Let’s Get You Registered for Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center (SSLC)' webpage appears and instructs to click the blue ‘Next-Verify’

Then the ‘Registration for Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center (SSLC) Access is Confirmed’ webpage appears. On the page it is mentioned that ‘We are setting up your account. You will receive a confirmation email shortly’ Only once in many attempts did I receive an email, which suggested to ‘Log in to intel.com/sslc to view and manage your Intel® PSG Software and IP License Entitlements.’ This link, in effect is https://licensing.intel.com/. Clicking this file then returns the following URL: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/partner-alliance/access-denied.html, and one is in a dead end. This dead end URL always appears after on is signed in

 

The only explanation that I have for not being able to obtain my required license is that there is a bug in the Intel website. Could this issue please be resolved ASAP? For two days I have tried various procedures mentioned on the Intel websites and forums and they all lead to a dead end.

 

In all honesty, I do not get why the free Questa Intel FPGA Starter Edition requires a license, the more so since the free Quartus Prime Lite Edition and the free ModelSim Intel FPGA Starter Edition do not require licenses

Goes to the same 'Denied' link, namely https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/partner-alliance/access-denied.html

I have tried many links that have been posted on forums before and never can reach the intended page. Quite frustrating actually.

On the Intel website, there is a link called  Self-Service Licensing Center . If one clicks that link, it also ends up at the above mentioned 'Denied' link. Seems that there is definitely a bug in the website. Could it please be solved ASAP?

Hi

 

Thanks for update. We have verify the links https://licensing.intel.com/ and https://licensing.intel.com/eval-free-licenses and can access the Self Service Licensing Center (SSLC) webpage without redirecting to access denied.

Dear AR_A_Intel. Here in Thailand it does not seem to work. I have tried via three different server providers and I always end up with a dead end. Could you please explain. That it works at your end does not help me. Could you please contact your IT people about what the problem could be. I am at a loss and you leave me in the dark.

I am afraid it does not work for me. When I click on them, they redirect to the URL https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/partner-alliance/access-denied.html? I have tried it on two laptops and a mobile phone and I got the same results. I don't know what to do.

Hi

 

We are not sure on the error happen as we can access SSLC without redirecting. Based on my understanding, Intel provides free licenses to Professors/ Faculty Members of qualified Universities. You could Sign into the FPGA Academic Program website and request license by applying at https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/topic-technology/fpga-academic/membership.html  and fill up the APPLY FOR MEMBERSHIP Form. If you have any question regarding University Program, drop an Email to psg.university@intel.com       

Our university team will help and answer your question.

The free license of QuestaSim is not available on the academia website. Also, over a week ago, I sent a message to the university program email address you provided. I did not receive any reply to that email. Hence, I can still not access the required license. I have also tried using an American VPN, all to no avail.

Thanks for sending me the  licence via PM. However, I am preparing hands-on tutorial notes for my students and would like to include the correct procedure an ensure that they can obtain a license as well. Hence, could you please look into the following problem I am facing:

After entering the URL https://licensing.intel.com/psg/s/, I am directed to the sign in webpage of the Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center (SSLC) at https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/my-intel/fpga-sslc-sign-in.htm. After signing in, I am directed to the webpage "Let’s Get You Registered for Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center" at https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/secure/support/programmable/forms/fpga-sslc-registration.html. On this page, I need to click the blue button "Next: Verify". After I click this button, I never receive an email, neither in my inbox nor in the my spam folder. When a colleague of mine does, he receives an email, which directs him to the licensing webpage. Can you please investigate why I do not receive an email. My email address is karel.s@bu.ac.th
