Self-service Licensing Center issued empty license for Questa FPGA Starter Edition

I received a license for Questa FPGA Starter Edition that consisted only of comments, and lacked the necessary cryptographic elements.  This has apparently happened before, e.g.:

https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-FPGA-Software-Installation/Empty-license-file-for-Questa-FPGA-Starter-Edition/m-p/1385013#M3881

 

Can someone at Intel get this working again?

Best regards,

--William

I'm also have the same issue.

Tried to generate a 90-day-evaluation license for Standard edition.

 

Here the section for questa of the license file:

################################################################################
# FEATURE START
# The following is the license file for Questa*-Intel FPGA Edition - Questa Plus
null
# FEATURE END

 

Regards

Hi.

 

There is an issue with license generator recently. The license generation issue has been resolved. A fix has been deployed. Could help to request/regenerate again a new license file in self-service licensing center and try it.

Thank you, I was able to generate a valid license on 1/12. However, one of my students attempted to generate the Questa license on 1/16 and received another invalid license.

 

################################################################################
# FEATURE START
# This is license file for Questasim*-Intel FPGA Starter Edition
# Number of seat licenses is 1
# License Expires 15-Jan-2025
300 Start date you specified is after the contract active end date.
# FEATURE END
