Trying Quartus Pro 18.1, Cyclone10GX device.
I see that without a Pro license the Transceiver Toolkit is grayed out.
With a license, i am able to use it.
This was not the case in previous Quartus releases. I tested Quartus SE 16.1 with CVGX and could use transceiver toolkit with and without a license.
Byright you shouldn't need license to use toolkit. I noticed the grey out as well.
The workaround is you can launch system console first then only launch transceiver toolkit from there.
