Questa Starter Edition licence generation

GR1

Hi,

We wish to generate a free licence for Questa starter edition, however it seems we have ran into some issues. We have downloaded through the sslc the licence for the Questa Starter Edition using the options set as shown in the picture.  We have setup the LM_LICENCE_FILE environment variable to point the licence's location, however we could not get Questa to work. 

 

We have looked at the licence file and we get something like below. It seems it generates the licence for Quartus instead of Questa Starter Edition ?

 

Thank you for your help,
