ModelSim - License Error

I have installed Quartus Lite 20.1 and ModelSim-Intel FPGA.

When I open the ModelSim from this path: 

C:\intelFPGA_Lite\20.1\modelsim_ae\win32aloem\modelsim.exe 

I get this error:

How do I solve this problem?

I found the solution. If I open the modelsim.exe from the folder \modelsim_ase\win32aloem\modelsim.exe, then I don't have license error. 

 

So, what is the difference between the modelsim.exe in these 2 folders?

Hi @LChow3 

 

You have installed both ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA Edition Software(modelsim_ae) and ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA Starter Edition Software(modelsim_ase) .

ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA Edition Software need a license to run while the starter edition does not. 
 

You may checkout the page below for further details.
