I have acquired an Altera DE2 cyclone II development board, I installed the software that came with the disk (Quartus II 7.2 web edition) but when I open it, it asks for a license. I have followed the link in the prompt and requested multiple licenses and waited over 24 hours for each but never received a single email. The software says it will not generate output files without the license, I am new to FPGA development, I am a college student and am not sure how to troubleshoot this. Can someone explain why I haven't received an email or tell me about some sort of workaround?
License for Quartus versions older than 8.1, please refer the below old thread for more details,
Please let me know, how it works for you.
It did not work and keeps sending this email *There is an issue in generating the license for this provided NIC/Host ID: D8EB97E9C22B
Please check your NIC/Host ID and try again. If you still encounter problems, please contact our customer support.

I have tried three times, I am going to attempt to download Quartus 8.1 web edition, which says it doesnt required a license, and hopefully it should be able to program my Cyclone II
Apologies for the inconvenience, there might be issue with licensing portal.
you can use any web versions of Quartus for cyclone II from shown below,
