Questa Sim license problem




I post this message, becouse couple weeks age I tried to run Questa Sim with free license with no success, which I posted in my previous request "Questa Sim Intel FPGA free license doesn't work".  Then I was told that I should use only supported OS (I used Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS).


So I chose Windows 10 and set up new environment based on Windows 10, but I still have the same or similar problem with license/installation.


I attach printscreens of my License Setup window and Error message window. I  also attach nativelink_simulation file which is pointed in that message and license file.


I use Quartus Prime Version 21.1.1 Build 850 06/23/2022 SJ Lite Edition. I don't know how to check Questa Sim version on Windows 10 (on Ubuntu I used "./vsim --version" command) but it is what I've got in combined files bundle download for that Quartus version.


One thing is different than it was during previous attempt. Then the nativelink_simulation.rpt file had no information where the error occured. Now the nativelink_simulation.rpt is filled with some text. Based on my understanding of message in that file (which is provided in attachment) this issue may not be license problem, but installation problem related to Questa Sim version.


Thanks in advance,
