I don't understand how to create or receive the free license for Questa FPGA starter edition

I just installed the Quartus 21.1 lite with the new EDA Questa FPGA starter edition included in place of Modelsim.

Questa should require a (free) license, but i'm not able to find any information about how create it.

I spend one hour looking around for finding a way or informations about this procedure.

All FAQs and installation infos i found seems don't have a single word about that.

The self licensing center says i don't have ant product to handle, probably i should send a request or any other action.

Please give me a link with the activation procedure in expalined in detail.

 

Note: I already found this link into a similar post:

 

1) Go to this link https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/software/programmable/quartus-prime/whats-new.html

2) Go to bottom of the page you will find (blank image)

3) Choose Questasim*-Intel® FPGA Starter edition. Create license. (blank image)

4) Once complete, the license will automatically sent to your email.

But i'm not sill able to find the create license .

Hi Wani,

Let me continue this thread.

I've got the license file for using Questa FPGA starter edition yesterday and set the path to it in Quartus Options

When I run RTL Simulation I get

What do I do wrong?

Design analyzing and Verilog synthesis run with no problem.

 

Thanks,

Found resolution of my problem in 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683472/21-4/specifying-the-license-for-the-software.html

 

No need to response Would be great to have that instruction in some readme with license file downloading. Or, as a comment inside the license file.
