I've worked with Quartus II Prime(18.1) Lite without any problem until yesterday.
Now, the SW has stuck at Analysis&Synthesis stage for 5-6 minutes and then I get an attached message.
The P.C. uses 98% of virtual memory during the compilation.
Important :I've got a couple of weeks ago message about expiration of maintenance, but SW continued to work.
As I know Quartus II Prime(18.1) Lite doesn't need any license at all...
I've uninstalled and installed the SW once again, but without any success.
What can I do?
Depending on your design, analysis & synthesis or other stages of the compiler could take much longer than 5 or 6 minutes, so you should probably wait longer to get results. It's not a license issue, because as you said, Lite doesn't need a license.
If you think it's not just a processing issue, you can try trashing the db and incremental_db folders to recompile the design from scratch.
