quartus lite says "You have 7 days remaining"? [quartus_cpf]

Hello, 

I notice that even though I installed the quartus lite - when I am running through an example on the DE10-Nano, a particular command (quartus_cpf) 

says "You have 7 days remaining (until May 16, 2018) to use..." 

Should the lite version stop working in this way? 

I posted the output below for reference.... 

Please help! 

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem. I thought Quartus Lite was free forever, not for 30 days. This message seems to imply it's not. Info (292036): Thank you for using the Quartus Prime software 30-day evaluation.

I don't understand if I need to buy a license for Standard or Pro

I'm also interested in this subject. Do you have any update on this? Did Quartus really stop working after 30days? Thanks.
