Questa Sim Licensing - cannot proceed MSCVR120.dll

Hi,

 

I have just installed quartus prime standard 21.1 and am trying to use Questa Sim. I have downloaded the license and pointed to it in my environmental variables per the previous advice for this. I do not see it as one of the chosen licenses I only have:

I have a quartus license and have generated the other license. Also I am using a computer on a companion license to my primary machine. 

 

When I try to open questa I get the error:
"The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCR120. was not found. reinstalling the program may fix the problem."

I have tried reinstalling questa, downloading the visual studio stuff, and am still getting this issue. Not sure where to go next.

Hello

 

Welcome to Intel forum. An error code (MSVCR120.dll is missing) usually happens when an application on Windows is missing. You can try the methods below and see if they can help.

 

1) Reboot your computer

2) Run your application as administrator

3) Reinstall your application

4) Reinstall Microsoft .NET framework (for Windows 7 or below)

5) Reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages

6) Update your Windows

7) Run check disk

Switch to ChromeOS
