Hi Sergio,


Here is quick overview what you should do


  1. Activate device (de_1 soc cyclone v)
  2. Obtain necessary hardware information
  3. Request a license file from Self-Service Licensing Center Home 
  4. Setup license (assuming your use fixed license)


All the step there you can refer to this link below for details


(from page 22-25)


For openclsdk v17.1 does not require an OpenCL license. For earlier versions, you either have to buy a license, or if you are university student, you can ask your supervisor to join Altera/Intel's university program through which you can get free licenses.
