Under Quartus Standard Edition 19.1 under the University license, quartus_fit refuses to run for the 5CSEMA5F31C6 Cyclone V on a Terasic DE1-SoC board. It gives the error

Error (119013): Current license file does not support the 5CSEMA5F31C6 device. Go to the Self-Service Licensing Center on the Intel FPGA website to manage your licenses (


It works fine with the same license file under Quartus 18.1


I tried regenerating the license file at the self-service license center, but still get the same error (the URL in the error message is no longer valid, by the way).


I tried stopping my license server and Quartus refused to run much earlier, so it's not just that the license server is broken.


I submitted a support request at the self-service license center and they responded I should ask here, in the forum.


Did Quartus 19.1 drop support for the 5CSEMA5F31C6 device? I couldn't find evidence of this in the release notes.


Here's a snippet of my license file:

Welcome to INTEL forum. Could you help check and upgrade the client PC to newest version of alterad daemon v11.16.1 and try it.

The daemons can be downloaded from the following link:
