Converting a Evaluation License from Fixed to Float

Hello,

As the title suggests I have a quartus prime pro evaluation license which I need to convert to float instead of fixed since. When I run

./lmutil lmstat -c /opt/intel/intelFPGA_pro/licenses/LR-156239_License.dat
lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2021 Flexera. All Rights Reserved.
Flexible License Manager status on Wed 1/31/2024 20:52

Error getting status: No SERVER lines in license file. (-13,66)

And SERVER lines are only present in float license. Please advise how to make this change.

Best,
Manu

Hello! I was able to solve it myself, the issue was as simple as Quartus not being in $PATH.  Which was given away because I wasn't able to invoke the quartus command and had to run it directly from ./opt/intel/intelFPGA_pro/quartus/bin/quartus. I am not sure why that leads to the issue with the license being read incorrectly however.


export $PATH=$PATH:
/opt/intel/intelFPGA_pro/quartus/bin/ does the trick.

Thanks
