Modelsim Intel FPGA Edition 2020.3 Pro and 2020.1 Standard license problem

Hi

I'm trying to run the Verilog HDL Testbench for a Single /Two Avalon-MM Master and Slave Pair.

With Modelsim Intel FPGA Edition 2019.4 Pro everything is good, but with 2020.3 Pro and 2020.1 Standard I get a messages like this:

# ** License Issue: License request for alteramtivlog feature failed

# ** License Issue: No such feature exists. (C:\FLEXLM\tools.lic)

# ** Error: Failure to obtain a Verilog simulation license. Unable to checkout any of these license features: 'alteramtivsim' or 'alteramtivlog'.

Our License File C:\FLEXLM\tools.lic

Our Modelsim Intel FPGA Edition License Expires 13-Oct-2021.

How to fix it ?

Thanks

Hello

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. To narrow down this issue. Can you provide your

1) Machine OS information

2) License.dat file

 

And for privacy, you can also reply/attach your file in private message.

Hi

Thanks for update. Could you help check and upgrade your PC to newest version of alterad daemon and try it.

The daemon can be downloaded from the following link:

Hi.

Our license is fixed, not floating.

The daemon is only needed for a floating license, right?

But I changed it, everything remained the same.

Thanks

Hi

 

Thanks for update. In your license, we can see that you have 3 dongle Guard ID.

# Primary  ID-Guard T000108612

# Companion ID-Guard T000108611

# Companion ID-Guard T000107471

Do you use all 3 guard ID in 1 PC/machine? And could you provide the full error message file for checking?

Hi.

I am using on this machine only  Primary  ID-Guard T000108612.

Attached Modelsim Altera Edition Pro 2020.3 full transcript file, which contains error messages.

Thanks,

Elit

Hello

 

Thanks for your update. May we know, have you re-generated your license.dat file? If not, could you help to re-generate your license file first and try it.

 

Guidance: https://fpgasupport.intel.com/AlteraLicensing/license/index.html --> Licensing Center Home --> Computer and License Files --> Select a computer to generate a new license file.

Hi.

I regenerated the license file, but it didn't help - the same errors remained.

Thanks,

Hi.

I checked on another computer with another software guard T000107471, nothing changed - 

Modelsim Intel FPGA edition Pro 19.4 works fine, but Pro 20.3 gives the same errors.

OC information:

Windows 10 Pro
Version 20H2
Installed on ‎10/‎06/‎2020
OS build 19042.630
Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.31.0

Attached License file and Modelsim transcript file with errors.

Thanks,

Hi

 

Thanks for update. For further understanding the issue, could you provide license file for ID-Guard T000108612 that you newly re-generate? Attach the license in .DAT format file like you attach for T000107471.

Hi.

Unfortunately, the new license did not solve the problem.

Modelsim Intel FPGA Edition 19.4 Pro works fine, but with 20.3 the errors are the same. 

Attached Modelsim transcript file.

Thanks,

Elit.

Hi

 

Thanks for update. Could you provide the latest debug.log file for checking? FYI, you can find debug.log file at LMTOOLS > path to the debug log file.

You can refer to this following YouTube on how to find debug log file ( min.2:55)

Hi.

Our license is fixed, not floating, log file not created.

I used lmutil lmdiag utility to check license and got the following message:

"alteramtivsim" v2021.11, vendor: mgcld, expiry: 11-nov-2021
vendor_string: 5C7AC454
uncounted nodelocked license, locked to Vendor-defined "GUARD_ID=T000108612" starts: 12-nov-2020, expires: 11-nov-2021

This license cannot be checked out because:
Everything is okay except possibly the hostid,
which is a non-standard, vendor-defined hostid,
that lmdiag can't verify

Thanks,

Elit
