ERROR: Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing.

I am trying to run a VWF and I get this error:

**** Running the ModelSim simulation ****

c:/intelfpga_lite/19.1/modelsim_ae/win32aloem//vsim -c -do lab1_ex.do

Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing.

** Fatal: Invalid license environment. Application closing.

Unable to checkout a license. Make sure your license file environment variables are set correctly and then run 'lmutil lmdiag' to diagnose the problem.

Modelsim - Intel FPGA Edition uses the following environment variables to check the licenses (listed in the order of preference)

1. MGLS_LICENSE_FILE

2. LM_LICENSE_FILE.

 

Error.

 

I can't find anything with the newer versions of quartus. I have Modelsim Starter Edition 19.1 downloaded along with quartus lite.

Hi,

 

Can you check if you are installing the Starter edition? The path indicates that you are using the paid edition of the software -- modelsim_ae. The starter edition is modelsim_ase.

 

c:/intelfpga_lite/19.1/modelsim_ae/win32aloem//vsim -c -do lab1_ex.do

 

Thanks.

Best regards,
