Hello

 

Welcome to Intel forum. But before setting up Modelsim, would you kindly help check, whether your machine is supported or not (OS) by referring to link below:

https://www.altera.com/support/support-resources/download/os-support.html             

For ModelSim software, you must set an environment variable the location of license. you need to specify location of the license file using the LM_LICENSE_FILE system variable (click/checkout the Use LM_LICENSE_FILE variable). You need to set your LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to point to the license that Intel provide. c:\intel\license.dat or something similar.

Please stop and restart PC after assigning.

 

You can refer to link on how to set environment variable.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/how-to-set-intel-license-file-environment-variable

 

You can also refer this following YouTube for license setup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob9ei5lMgGE  

 

Let me know if this information is helpful.
