It is a 12.1 subscription version. I only have the licence.dat file. How could I proceed?

Hi Tivon,

 

You can rehost or transfer a license from one computer to another. You can rehost

each license up to three times within your maintenance period.

Kindly check the steps in below link - Page 35 (4.5.4. Transferring a License File to Another Computer)

Thank you.

Hi, All the procedures you suggests assumes the previous PC is still alive. That is not my case. I only have the licence.DAT file of Quartus. This is not covered by your manual book. I am stuck today. Rgeards

Assuming your subscription is active, just copy the file to the new machine and point to it from the Quartus license settings. If it's not active, you'll have to go to the license management section of the website and renew your subscription, then download the new license.dat.
