License for Altera DE2, quartus II

Hello everyone,

 

I find a Altera DE2 development board and installed Quartus II 7.2 but there is no license. I tried the self licensing center and use the legacy licensing. My mac address is E84E062E4EA4. But the email tells me they cannot generate license for it.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi ZHE, Prior to Quartus version 8.1, license generation can be done from the below Legacy license generator software , https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/download/licensing/li... Refer the below different Intel FPGA software license types & old forum thread, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/download/licensing/ov... https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P0000470hlA/i-need-a-license-to-enable-the-design-security-f... Please let me know if you come across different issue. Regards, Vikas

Hi Vicky

 

Thank you for you reply!

I tried the legacy license generator, but the email says it cannot generate the license for the NIC I've provided.

I am using Linux system and I got my NIC by running the command ifconfig. It gives me something like "aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff". I remove the colon ":".

 

Best Regards

Zhe

Hi Zhe, Could you please go through the old thread attached below, https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P0000470hlA/i-need-a-license-to-enable-the-design-security-f... try to check by requesting the license file by entering "ffffffffffff" in the field NIC/Host/Guard ID. & provide the NIC ID in the description.

Hi Vicky,

 

Thank you very much! I've submitted my request and hope I will get my license soon.

Once I get my license, I will update this thread.

 

Thanks & Best Regards

It seems Altera DE2 doesn't have license. I have to buy it or download the Lite version.

But thanks everyone!
