Questa FPGA SE Licensing

Hello forum,

 

I recently generated a license for the Questa FPGA SE (Questa*-Intel® FPGA Starter Edition SW-QUESTA) for Quartus Prime Lite edition. I am running into issues when attempting to start the Questa simulation software.

 

What I have done:

- Generated a license using my computer's NIC

- Received the license file (.dat) and have stored it in `C:\licenses\flexlm\... .dat`

- I have set LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to the license file

- I have set Quartus to utilise the LM_LICENSE_FILE in the `licence setup` menu

 

Please see attached screenshots.

 

Issue:

When running Questa, I run into this error.

From the error, I understand that this is a licensing issue, but I am confused where to go from here..

 

I would appreciate any guidance from the forum. I hope to have informed well. 

Thanks in advance.

Arief.
