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 ?
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
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 for your update. At this point we could not see clearly what cause the failure. May we know, did you use remote desktop to compile modelsim?
2) How many Modelsim software is launched when you see this error?
3) Can you help check the environment setup for LM_LICENSE_FILE and MGLS_LICENSE_FILE? Provide me the screenshot.
We only use one Modelsim at a time, we do not use Remote Desktop Connection.
Once again, I emphasize that Modelsim Intel Edition Pro19.4 works fine, but Modelsim Intel Edition Pro 20.3 has problems.

However, it is not clear why the following message appear in Modelsim transcript:
