Hi,

 

I am using Quartus lite 21.1 version.

In which I am trying to use simulator showing below error

 

c:/intelfpga_lite/21.1/questa_fse/win64//vsim -c -do New_test.do

Unable to checkout a license. Make sure your license file environment variable (e.g., LM_LICENSE_FILE)

is set correctly and then run 'lmutil lmdiag' to diagnose the problem.

Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing.

 

** Error: Invalid license environment. Application closing.

 

Error.

 

Can any one help me to resolve this issue.

 

I am a beginner and using free version of Quartus lite learning at home as a hobby.

 

Regards,

Yogesh

Hi Wani,

 

How can I get license file as I am facing license error in simulation.

Is download license file will be available for free or is it required subscriptions for 1monthly or yearly etc.

As I have started learning verilog and desperately need simulation software for my codes.

 

Please help on this. As email sent haven't received any response

 

Regards,

Yogesh
