Questa Intel Starter FPGA Edition 2021.2 verification license

In my design, there are systemverilog features like covergroup.

But I can't simulate these , questa shows me the error as below.

# ** Error: Failure to checkout svverification license feature.
# ** Error: (vsim-1) Unable to checkout verification license - required for testbench features (randomize, randcase, randsequence, covergroup).

 

 

Is it impossible to use this testbench features in Questa Sim Starter Edition?

I already got the starter edition license in SSLC. And the other designs which not contain systemverilog verification language are simulated well.

Hello,

I had the same license error. I followed the instruction list you provided. The result is the same. Actually, we have license for Questa Intel FPGA Edition-64 2021.2 instead of the start edition. Look forward your help to resolve this issue.

Thanks!
