Hi Elit,


Can you download it again? Try clear cache before downloading or maybe try a different browser.

Hi Nurina,

I was able to download not corrupted file, but only on a different computer with Internet Explorer,

not  Google Chrome and not Microsoft Edge (Chromium).

But unfortunately there are problems with the license, generated by the link, specified during installation.

Attached screenshot, Mentor Graphics debug log, license file.

Perhaps the simulator requires a license with Host ID - MAC address, not GUARD_ID ?

If this is correct, please regenerate license - MAC address text file attached.

Thanks, Elit

Thank you Elit.


Did you set the environment variables? If not, go to Control Panel->System->Advanced System->Environment Variables

Then under user variables set a variable "Path" to have a value "C:\intelFPGA_pro\21.2\questa_fe\win64" it should look something like that, otherwise try looking for the questa win64 installation folder and use that path.


Let me know if this solves your problem.

Nurina

Hi Nurina.

All environment variables were set - Path, LM_LICENSE_FILE, MGLS_LICENSE_FILE,
MGLS_DEBUG_LOG_DIR - immediately after installing Questa.

The problem is probably something else.

Hi Elit,


You are right, the license requires MAC ID instead of GUARD_ID for the host ID.

Regenerate your license here: https://fpgasupport.intel.com/Licensing/license/index.html?r=1617866734000&navi=8

Hi Nurina.

Unfortunately,  Self Service License Center  does not allow to specify MAC ID instead of GUARD_ID, 

and generates a non-working license.

In my opinion this is a bug.  I requested support in Licensing Support Center.

Hope to get a quick response.

 

Thanks,

Elit.

Hi Nurina,

With help of the support center  - Non IPS Licensing (Case 00628017 has been created.)-

I succeeded to add New Computer with MAC address Host ID, but...

generated license (attached) is empty - contains only comments.

I will also continue to contact the License support.

 

Thanks,

Elit

Hi Elit,


I suggest you to re-open the IPS case (you can just leave a comment and it will re-open), because the application engineer assigned to you is responsible for issues like yours. Let them know that you have re-generated the license but it does not work for you.

Nurina
