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

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

Added created debug.log file

Thanks

Hi

May we know, did you save the file as license.dat and place this file in C:\flexlm?

Hi.

Yes, we put the  license.dat file in the directory C:\FLEXLM.

Thanks,

Hi

 

Thanks for update. Could you provide Screenshot of Quartus II>>tools>>license setup for checking.

Hi

 

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.

Hi.

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.

Intel® FPGA Software Installation and Licensing Manual, p.41, table7, notes:

  1. The alteramtivsim license subscription supports both VHDL and Verilog HDL and mixed language simulation for
    ModelSim - Intel FPGA Edition starting with Intel Quartus Prime software version 15.0 and later. This includes designs
    that are written in a combination of Verilog, System Verilog, and VHDL languages, also known as mixed HDL. For ModelSim - Intel FPGA Edition version 6.3g_p1 and earlier, the alteramtivsim license subscription supports VHDL only.
    2. The ModelSim - Intel FPGA Edition alteramtivlog license subscription supports Verilog HDL only and is available for ModelSim - Intel FPGA Edition version 6.3g_p1 and earlier.

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

** License Issue: License request for alteramtivlog feature failed

Thanks,

Elit
