Cannot proceed because MSVCR120.dll was not found

Hi,
Recently I have installed intel quartus prime pro and using it. I have tried to run modelsim, and it shows this error.

" The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCR120.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I am unable to run it because of this error. I have searched about the error and found a answer that , install MS VC++ and I have installed 2013 version of that also..

Kindly help me to run this..

Thanks and Regards

Hi @MuralikumarM 

 

Please check that the LM_LICENSE_FILE is directed to a license file. Modelsim Intel Edition required a license.  

How to set LM_LICENSE_FILE:

In the command prompt:
setx LM_LICENSE_FILE <license file path>

example: C:\intelFPGA_pro\21.1\license.dat

Hi @MuralikumarM 

 

Do you download the Modelsim installer from our Download Center for FPGAs? 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/downloads/download-center.html 

 

Try to uninstall the current Modelsim and install the Modelsim - Intel FPGA edition. 

Let me know if the issue persists.

Hmm that's weird. Have you try to install in other machine and observe the same issue? 

Could you share a screenshot of the shown error?
