Simulation not working in Intel Quartus Prime (Questasim unable to checkout license)

Hi,

As I try to run simulation using RTL in Intel Quartus Prime, I get an error complaining about a license problem.  I already had questasim installed which works fine but when it is opened through Quartus then I get the error message below. Has anyone managed to fix this problem?

Hello

 

Welcome to Intel forum. May we know Quartus version you use?

And could you help re-confirm your environment variable setup again? You need to set your LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to point to the license that Intel provides. c:\intel\license.dat or something similar.

 

You can refer to link on how to set environment variable.

To make this entry, you may perform a windows Search for "System Variables" and then click on "Edit the System Environment Variables" and then click "Environment Variables". Be aware that you must add the entry in System variables, not user variables.

Hi ,

 

I can't quite figure out what I have to do. I already have Questasim FPGA Starter edition installed. The Lincense file has been added to the environment variables and Questa works fine when I launch it from the start menu it just doesn't work when I launch it from Intel Quartus. Any ideas ?
