Quartus II Web Edition 12.1sp1 Licensing (Asking for a license file)

Hi All 

 

I'm facing a little problem when trying to get Quartus II 12.1sp1 WebEd. When I run it, it is asking for a license! 

 

Visiting the page of Quartus II download ( Home > Design Tools & Services > Design Software > Quartus II Web Edition page) 

and clicking at 'Download Software Web Edition Free', it goes to "Home > Support > Downloads > Quartus II Web Edition Software" page. 

 

Then I selected the 'DVD .iso file' tab, I get the 3 ACDS ISO's for Linux. Installed it and, when I run, 

I get this picture:

I've tried to 'perform automatic web license retrieval', but it rises an error. 

So, I'm not managing to use a free license. How can I do it ?!? 

 

Thanks a lot in advance

I've seen the same thing with a design using a Cyclone IV (on my home PC). What I was trying to do was pretty simple so I used Q11.0 instead.

It looks like the 12.1sp1 DVD images don't have the web edition version. It is installing the Subscription Edition. 

 

The version 12.1 Web Edition page does have a correct DVD it looks like though. 

 

You can either install 12.1sp1 using a different method (the automatic downloader, or the "Individual Files" option), or you can use a DVD from an earlier version. 

 

You can tell that you actually got the Web Edition version because the resulting downloaded file will have "free" in the filename.
