The one error that I see in the log is around Feature alteramtivsim (which may be ModelSim

 vendor_string: 0D5FFAC5

 License server: licensealt01

 floating license starts: 21-aug-2019,  expires: 20-aug-2020

 

This license cannot be checked out because:

No such feature exists.

Feature:    alteramtivsim

License path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Altera\flexlm\license.dat;

Re: ModelSim license not showing as available in FlexLM.

Any update here? There have been a couple email communications, but that has stopped. Our engineers are anxious to begin using this.

Re: ModelSim license not showing as available in FlexLM.

Hello

 

We notice that the path to modelsim daemon is not mgcld.exe. Could you change this Example:

             SERVER myserver 0123456789ab 1800

             VENDOR alterad ./alterad port=1801

             VENDOR mgcld ./mgcld port 1802

If you don’t have the latest version of daemon, you can download here https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/download/licensing/da...

Re: ModelSim license not showing as available in FlexLM.

Actually, even though I restarted the service, that did not help, but a reboot seemed to help. I am now seeing the below. I will have an engineer test to see if they can check out a license in the morning.

Re: ModelSim license not showing as available in FlexLM.

And latest update from engineer:

I can start the Modelsim UI (non-student version), and it appears to compile the code, but when I try running the simulation, it tells me the following features can't be found:

alteramtivlog

alteramtivsim

 

In status as last posted, we can clearly see that 2nd license is available, but not the alteramtivlog

Re: ModelSim license not showing as available in FlexLM.

Hi Sir

 

Apologize for the delay. Received your attachment, your modelSim daemon is ‘mgcld version 11.11’ could you upgrade to latest version 11.13.1.2

You can download here

Re: ModelSim license not showing as available in FlexLM.

Well, I had replaced this previously and restarted the service, but apparently it needed a server reboot. All seems to be working now.

 

I am glad we got to resolution, but this is something that could have been resolved in a brief call or web session instead of 10 days of back and forth while our engineers sat idle. I really wish Intel would reconsider their support model. Forums serve a purpose, but when you have paid support ....
