Welcome to Intel forum. You may request the Questa Sim Starter Edition free license here https://licensing.intel.com/
1) Go to Sign up for Evaluation or Free licenses
2) Select Questa*-Intel® FPGA Starter Edition SW-QUESTA
3) # of Seats is always 1
4) Check the T&C box
5) Click Get License button
The license will be sent to email that you register with
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?
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.
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.
For further checking kindly advise the following.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.htm.... 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 email@example.com
