Hi, 

Recently, my license file was expired.  So, I went to re-generate  my license file again.  However, I found it generate the empty ModelSim FEATURE as follows in my license file:

# FEATURE START
# The following is a license file for the ModelSim
# FEATURE END

 

Then, I got failed to run ModelSim with the below Fatal License Error:

Hi,

Right now, I can run ModelSim with the above new license file LR-083849. 

I found that ModelSim needs the license file name used with MGLS_LICENSE_FILE/LM_LICENSE_FILE is as same as that used in "Quartus --> Tools --> license setup...".   

Basically, the new license file generated with all features can fix the root cause.
