To provide more information.

The eval license should support the Questa.

Also, I did setup the both LM_LICENSE_FILE and MGLS_LICENSE_FILE in the "System Variables", to the License.dat file.

Hi

 

Could you help re-confirm your environment variable setup again? You need to set your LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to point to the license that Intel provides. c:\intel\license.dat or something similar.

 

You can refer to link on how to set environment variable.

To make this entry, you may perform a windows Search for "System Variables" and then click on "Edit the System Environment Variables" and then click "Environment Variables". Be aware that you must add the entry in System variables, not user variables.

Please note that you need to add the license file name to the environment variable path, not just the directory.

Hi,

Is there any update? Is my LM_LICENSE_FILE setup correct in the System variables?
