how do i renew an expired license


One of the several computers I manage has a licensing problem.  There are four associated license files to this specific MAC address.  3 out of 4 license files are good at the moment, however the ModelSim license maintenance and expiration date have passed.


These license files apply to a instructor's laptop in my department at a College.  How do I renew the expired license for this computer?


We do not have a support contract through Intel, but our licensing goes back 20+ years to when we became part of the University program through the Altera Company.   When Intel FPGA absorbed Altera, our licensing went with it.

In the past year or so, I had applied to Intel FPGA for a renewal concurrent network license to handle lab computers.  However, our instructors still wish to work offsite and have a license tied directly to their computer, even more since the COVID pandemic began 2 years ago.


The 'license assistant web applet did not really answer my questions, and Intel Support directed me to this forum.  I very much hope someone reads this and can steer me to a timely solution.


Thank you for your time,
