I accidently set my Quartus Prime to an evaluation license a few days ago. My company has full Quartus Prime Pro licenses but I can't seem to switch back to the full license.
I am unable to generate programming files and it preventing me from completing my work.
I'm using Quartus Prime Pro 19.1. I don't think changing version is practical at this time.
Is there a way to permanently remove this evaluation license to use my company's paid license?
So the parts of this screenshot you blocked out, you're pointing to a legit .dat file and have LM_LICENSE_FILE set up and it still is in eval mode? You only need one or the other but if it's a fixed license, make sure it was created for the MAC address of your machine (one of them if multiple). Or are you accessing a floating license on a server?
I should have clarified, I'm trying to use a floating license. I was able to remove the eval license by doing a full reinstall of Quartus. Quartus still isn't able to use the license and gives this error: "Can't connect to the Intel FPGA website to check for license file updates. Verify that you have an active internet connection. To prevent the Quartus Prime software from connecting to the internet to check for updates, in the Options dialog box, on the Internet Connectivity page, turn off the options under Startup."
The server running Quartus has full internet access and doesn't use any proxies. This setup has been working without issue for the past year.
I'm able to ping the server and I get this output from lmstat
I'm using Quartus 19.1 so I think the license should be valid.
I'm fairly new to Quartus so I'm not too familiar with the licensing. I will check with who handles our licensing.
Would it be normal to get that connection error rather than Quartus reporting an expired license?
Can you give me a little background/elaborate on current issue, could you provide the error message screenshot or any difficulty that could help on understanding this issue?
To further understand the issue, could you get me the:
1) Debug/error.log file
2) Error message screen shot
3) Screenshot of Quartus II>>tools>>license setup
4) Machine OS information
5) Quartus version used
6) Output of “lmutil lmstat –a –c <port>@<address>” server and client
7) License.dat file
For privacy, reply/attach file in private message.
We have not heard from you and It is not recommended to keep a Case idle too long without activities. I will now transition this thread to community support.
