Anyone has any idea why this happens? Thanks a lot!
You may check the MGLS_LICENSE_FILE and LM_LICENSE_FILE variable that has been set if it is pointing to the correct or latest license file/server.
You also may need to check if any firewall has been enabled and if necessary add exceptions for these ports in the firewall or disable the firewall and have try if you can get the license to work.
Here is how I setup my license:
where the dat file is my license file. I was able to use the same license file for Quartus. For firewall, this licence is specifically generated for the IP address of this computer and I was able to use Quartus just fine so I don't understand why modelsim doesn't work. Below attach the beginning of the license. I think one thing bothers me is in the comment that the expiration data is the same day that I applied for this license. Not sure if this may cause problem?
