I have a De5a-net-e1 board and it's BSP version only has 16.0 16.1 17.1 .
I download the AOCL-pro-cb-17.1 because it doesn't need IP license while compiling the fpga kernel.
But when I install the quartus prime pro 17.1 ,it will be no response when it was installed to 90%.
I have tried the Centos7.4 and Ubuntu 16.Both of them have this problem.
By the way ,I tried to install 16.0 and 16.1 some days ago .
They were installed successfully.Then I put the quartus license to the right position and the quartus find it correctly .
But when I compiled the test vector_add.cl .It occured an error that the compiler conld not acquire a valid license but I have.
I have used many ways which were found on this community but none of them can solve my problem.
Such as create a dummy eth0.
According to https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/opencl-sdk/archives/ug-a... in chapter 3.5, you may need to check the environment variable for the license.
The OS version might be not compatible with the OpenCL SDK v16.0 /v16.1.
Also, I would like to know does the Quartus Prime Pro and OpenCL SDK software is downloaded from the Intel official website?
Lastly, the device with OPN number: 10AX115N2F45E1SG can be found in Quartus Prime Pro 19,3 version and OpenCL SDK v19.3 is not required the license file. May you try to used Quartus Prime Pro v19.3 and OpenCL SDK v19.3?

Quartus Prime Pro:
OpenCL SDK link:
My environment vairable settings for the license is right.The environment variable is :
My license was generated two months ago.And the Quartus Prime Pro can find it correctly.But the AOC compiler could not.
I'm sure that the AOCL and Quartus Prime Pro were downloaded from the Intel official website.
When I compiled the xx.cl with aoc .The error occured :
" Could not acquire a valid license for the Intel(R) FPGA SDK for OpenCL(TM).
Error: Verilog generator FAILED! "
I have read many answers on this community but none of them can solve my problem.I think I need more license to use aoc.
I want to know if I need an another license except the Quartus Prime Pro license?Such as IP license.
Finally , I'm not sure that the device de5a-net-e1 can be supported by Quartus Prime Pro v19.3,because I can't find the v19.3 BSP on the Terasic website:
Thank you for you reply.
From the environment variable, I saw this:
The license file used seems like export from the same place.
Also, I would like to check the information as below:
- license.dat file
- mac address
Could you try to email to me so that I can further investigate?
Upon checking on the license file, I found that the license file does not included OpenCL software feature. You may need to apply free license for OpenCL software under University Program in the link below:
