I have purchased a DE1 kit. The Quartus software works only up to simulation. When I try to start programming, it tells me I Have only an evaluation version. I have tried to enter the serial number on the kit to activate my product but the number is not recognized.
You need to download and install Quartus II Web Edition, it sounds like you have the subscription edition installed.I posted an example design for the DE1 to this thread: http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35687 Cheers, Dave
--- Quote Start --- Thanks Dave, but I had tried the web edition already with the same result --- Quote End --- What OS and what version of Quartus are you trying to use? Cheers, Dave
--- Quote Start --- The OS is Windows 7 and the Quartus edition is the one that came with the kit - 7.2 --- Quote End --- I doubt that version 7.2 is supported under Windows 7. I think older versions of Quartus Web Edition did use a license file that you had to request, but that service probably does not exist anymore. Download and install the latest version of Quartus II Web Edition. The zip file I pointed you to was developed using 11.1sp1, but it should work in whatever the latest version is. If not, ask, and I'll help you figure it out. Cheers, Dave
