Empty license file for Questa FPGA Starter Edition

Hi,

 

I've tried generating the SW-QUESTA and SW-QUARTUS-WE-FIX licenses multiple times, but each time the .dat file is missing the "Questa part".  These are invalid licenses and thus Questa won't launch.

 

I attached the full license I received.  Also, below, I copied and pasted the relevant "Questa part" of the license file I received when I generated the SW-QUESTA license:

 

################################################################################
# FEATURE START
# This is license file for Questasim*-Intel® FPGA Starter Edition
# Number of seat licenses is 1
# License Expires 17-May-2023
# FEATURE END
################################################################################

Notice there is nothing in between the FEATURE START and FEATURE END tags.  A valid license would have a FEATURE tag between them.

 

Is the Self-Service License Center broken right now?

How can I get a valid Questa FPGA Starter Edition license?

Hi ditto,

There are issue with Questa license generated recently.
I believe that the issue has been resolved.

Could you help to apply again Questa license in Self Service Licensing Center https://licensing.intel.com/psg/s/ ?
