Failed to generate Legacy License

Hello. I downloaded Quartus software, but it calls for license at startup.

After trying to get license here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/download/licensing/lic-choose.html

 

I get this email:

There is an issue in generating the license for this provided NIC/Host ID: ****************   Please check your NIC/Host ID and try again. If you still encounter problems, please contact our customer support.   Intel FPGA Applications 24/7 Technical Support: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/mysupport   DISCLAIMER: This is an automated email. Please do not reply to this email.

 

How can I start using Quartus?

What version/edition of Quartus are you trying to get a license for?

Lite (no license needed), Standard, or Pro?

 

As that page says, for newer versions of Quartus, you need to use the self-service licensing center here (after logging into intel.com):

This way it says: You do not have any products for which you can create a new license.

Contact Customer Service for assistance.

Yes, you have to purchase a license first, giving them your MAC address (which I recommend you erase from your original post), and then use the SSLC to actually generate the license file.

I assumed that Quartus is a free software.

I bought Terasic ADC-SoC development board with ALTERA Cyclone V.

Do I need licensed Quartus for programming this development board?

It depends on the functionality you need. Lite edition is free and supports Cyclone V, but you may want/need features only available in Standard. See the comparison here:
