modelsim_ae licensing not working

Jump to solution

Hello, I am an Intel Intern trying to get modelsim altera edition working properly on Ubuntu 16.04. I have the complete Quartus Prime 18.0 Standard Edition and I have Quartus working and the licensing is set up. However, when I attempt to run modelsim, I get an error about the licensing.

 

 

First, I tried to run modelsim through the Quartus GUI, which generated the attached report.

 

Then, I attempted to run it through command line with ./vsim and this produced the following output:

 

$ ./vsim

Unable to checkout a license. Make sure your license file environment variable (e.g., LM_LICENSE_FILE)

is set correctly and then run 'lmutil lmdiag' to diagnose the problem.

Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing.

** Fatal: Invalid license environment. Application closing.

 

 

 

So I checked to make sure my variable existed:

 

$ echo $LM_LICENSE_FILE

1800@altera02p.elic.intel.com

 

 

Then I used lmutil as the above output suggested (I copied the directory I ran this command from too):

 

~/intelFPGA/18.0/modelsim_ae/linuxaloem$ ./lmutil lmdiag

-----------------------------------------------------

License file: 1800@altera02p.elic.intel.com

-----------------------------------------------------

"6AF7_00DD" v2019.04, vendor: alterad, expiry: 1-jan-0

 License server: fmylic7008.fm.intel.com

 floating license no expiration date

 

 

This license can be checked out

-----------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

And this is where I felt stuck. It appears that the diagnostic tool does not believe anything is wrong, so what could be causing this? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Best Regards, Alex
