sof Encryption dialog elements don't show up

Honored Contributor II

As the title suggests, I am in "convert programming files" 

and trying to generate an encrypted programming file 

but clicking on properties for the particular .sof only shows 

"Compression" and not the additional Encryption components. 


I am using Quartus II v9.0 with no service packs. 

I have contacted Altera support through an SR and gotten 

a license file that did not make a difference. 

They say it should work. I say it does not. 


The license file has the applicable line in it for encryption 

but then again the license file I had before I contacted support 

also had the applicable line which is(according to support): 

FEATURE quartus_nonvolatile_encryption alterad 2010.12 permanent 


The "Licensed AMPP/MegaCore functions" box in license setup does not 

show the licensed element and support says it should not.

Not sure when it started to show up(the dialog) but it does now. 

Perhaps shutting down Quartus and opening it up. Oh well.
