NIOS and TSE license issue Can't open encrypted VHDL or Verilog HDL file. Current license file does not contain a valid license for encrypted file.

Hello,

 

We have been using Quartus for several years.

Lately we have updated to Quartus Prime 18.1.

While we were buying the licenses we have been using a license from an evaluation kit. We have generated time limited sof version without problems.

We now have new licenses for Quartus, NIOS and TSE. These can be seen in Quartus (attached image)

 

When we try to compile it gives us an error, as if we had no license (NIOS, TSE):

Error (10003): Can't open encrypted VHDL or Verilog HDL file "....../NIOS_cpu_cpu.v" -- current license file does not contain a valid license for encrypted file

 

Error (10003): Can't open encrypted VHDL or Verilog HDL file

"......./altera_eth_tse_mac.v" -- current license file does not contain a valid license for encrypted file

(And more like this)

 

Our Flex server version is v11.14.0.2

 

Regards,

Juan Antonio

Hello

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. May I know, have you re-generate your license file? If not, could you help to re-generate your license file in Self Service Licensing Center and try it. Only the license administrator can re-generate the license file. 

 

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.

Yes, I re-generated my license file. I can see the license in the license manager. Could you see the attached image in my previous message?

I repeat the test using the last license file (see attached image).
