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! lefty D:\projects\DE10-Nano\Demonstrations\SoC_FPGA\Nios_Access_DDR3\demo_batch>sof_to _rbf D:\projects\DE10-Nano\Demonstrations\SoC_FPGA\Nios_Access_DDR3\demo_batch>C:\int elFPGA_lite\17.1\quartus\\bin64\\quartus_cpf -c -o bitstream_compression=on DE10 _NANO_SoC_GHRD.sof soc_system.rbf Info: ******************************************************************* Info: Running Quartus Prime Convert_programming_file Info: Version 17.1.1 Internal Build 593 12/11/2017 SJ Lite Edition Info: Copyright (C) 2017 Intel Corporation.

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
