Quartus Std 21.1 does not see my Guard ID

This appears to be similar to a post entitled "Installed Quartus 19.3, Does not see my Guard ID. License expires the end of Nov 2019". A public solution wasn't posted so I appear to be in the same bind. I have Quartus Std v18.1.1 running fine. It can see my Guard ID. I recently installed Quartus Std v21.1 and Quartus can no longer locate my USB dongle. Please see attached files.

I've noticed that "C:\intelFPGA\<version>\quartus\drivers\sentinel" directory no longer exists for v21.1, otherwise I would have tried to deinstall/reinstall the drivers.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello

 

Welcome to Intel forum. Based on my understanding, the support for Guard ID was removed starting Quartus Std v21.1

I have the same issue and my work requires me to bounce between three computer. The dongle gave me the flexibility I need to have without three licenses or using a floating license (which I don't always have access to). Right now I move to 20.1 which does support dongle; however, moving forward can the developer look at how to support a license that deal with a multi-computer work environment (note: I don't share my dongle with any other developer)?
