Hi - I have an old Altera Cylcone 3 Development Kit - all the original CDs, box and hardware. I'd like to install Quartus II v13.1 to work with the board but it says I need a license key. How can I get the license key to activate?

The CDs with the product do not have any serial numbers I can see on them. The board has identifiers per below:

 

ALT6XX40444ROC

 

S00214500061052L0551

 

P001145000610520276

Hello,

Good day

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. May we know, are you using this dev.kit https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/kit-cy...

From instruction table 2, This kit installation works with Quartus II Design Software version 11.1.0. Could you help check on this. thanks

Yes,. i am using that development kit

 

The intel software supporter says this board is supported to up to version 13.1 of Quartus2

 

Where would the license file be? on the original CDs that came with the software? I still have them.

 

Or do i need to get it from Intel/Altera?

 

Thanks
