Can I use the Questa-Intel Starter Edition for hobby?


Can I use the Questa-Intel Starter Edition for hobby? If yes, how can I get a license for Questa-Intel Starter Edition? I try to click the link "Intel® FPGA Self Service Licensing Center" in the "Intel® FPGA Licensing Support Center" and then I redirected on the Account Required page which tells:

- Ensure that you are using the email address associated with your Intel® Partner Alliance account.
- Complete registration for Intel® Partner Alliance account access.
- Contact your company’s partner admin to ensure you have the proper entitlements to view this content.

Still need help accessing Intel Partner Alliance? Chat with Intel.

In the chat Anna-Marie typed to me the next text:

"please visit this Intel Community - FPGAs and Programmable Solutions and post question on the appropriate subforum topic <...> this team is the one who can answer the query since this is out of our scope".

So how can I use a Questa-Intel Starter Edition If I do not represent any company?

Welcome to Intel forum. Could you help to request the Questa Sim Starter Edition free license again here        

1) Go to Sign up for Evaluation or Free licenses

2) Select Questa*-Intel® FPGA Starter Edition SW-QUESTA

3) # of Seats is always 1

4) Check the T&C box

5) Click Get License button

The license will be sent to email that you register with

But before that, could you help clear your web browsers cache/temporary internet files (if possible, shutdown your PC and restart back) and sign back to SSLC  using Google chrome and see how things go.
