Running Quartus Standard Edition under virtualization

Anybody has experience running Quartus Standard Edition under a VMware workstation? I used the Lite/free/web edition without any problem. But never tried the ​licensed edition. Does the license manager work ok?

I've used fixed license with no problems. If your network setup in the VM works and you can get to the license server, you shouldn't have any issues.

Thanks. But not quite sure I understand. Are you using a fixed or a floating license? If it is fixed, why do you need a remote license server​ at all? Shouldn't be able to run the license server locally on the VM?

I'm using fixed, but I have used floating in the past. I've never run the license server on the same machine, though.
