I have downloaded and installed 'Questa - Intel FPGA Starter Edition 2021.2(Quartus Prime Pro 21.1) to my personal machine.

 

Question #1) As I understand it, this is supposed to be a free license version, correct ?

 

Question #2) , this is the correct software suite to be downloading in order to use ModelSim, correct ? I need it for a course I am taking.

 

After downloading, I attempt to go and open the program, and I get a licensing message that I cannot seem to get rid of. I attached a fotocopy of the error message to this help ticket. Help!

 

Regards,

Evie
