We purchased a NIOS II license back in 2007.
I've now tried to use this in Quartus 18 (having made a new NIOS "Gen2" component) and I'm getting the following error:-
Warning (292015): License for core Nios II Processor (6AF7_00A2), version 2009.04 is expired.
I've attached a screenshot of the license setup.
Can anyone explain the difference between the NIOS license being "permanent" but the "Subscription Expiration" being 2018.09?
Has my "permanent" NIOS license *actually* expired?
Or does my previous license not support the Gen2 core?
Thanks for the reply.
Just to confirm, I have two NIOS license entries (1) and (2).
The (2) license is an evaluation license and supported until Quartus 11.1
So how about the (1) license ?
This the "permanent" license, correct ?
And, like the (2) license, is also only supported until Quartus 11.1, correct ?
If so, is this because my license only covers the NIOS Gen1 "classic" core ?
So I'll need a new license for the Gen2 core ?
Sorry for all the questions ... just trying to work out your definition of "permanent" 😕
