Questa fails to launch (after previously working fine)

Hello,

I attempt launching Questa after not accessing it for a couple of weeks, but it is stuck on the black terminal screen (see below). The license file is valid, and Quartus load without a hitch.

No one touched this computer for a couple of weeks (been on vacation), so I can't figure out why the program won't load all of a sudden. 

In another forum questions it was suggested to check the Quartus path to Questa. 

In Quartus when going to Tools -> Options I do not have the " EDA Tools Options" tab.

Using Quartus 22.1 Pro and Questa 2022.1

  1. Could you try to launch the Questa with admin privileges?
  2. There is a chance that other software on the system may be conflicting with the Questa Tool. Try closing other applications and disabling any anti-virus software temporarily to see if it resolves the issue.
  3. If issue still persists, you might need to reinstall the software (with admin privileges).

 

The EDA Tools Options only available in Quartus Standard/lite. Not in Quartus Pro.

This is due to the Nativelink simulation flow only supported in Quartus Standard/lite.

Hope that clarify. 

 

Best Regards,

Richard Tan

Hi Richard!

Thanks for your replay, I apologize for not responding earlier, as the notification was sent tomy Junk Mail
Running the app as Administrator did solve the issue.  I can't figure out why that started out of the blue, perhaps a Windows update thing. 

Thanks!
