i tried to run waveform simulation and inspire that in all sites i check posted that no licence needed for lite adition i get next error 

 

"Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing.** Fatal: Invalid license environment. Application closing. 

Unable to checkout a license. Make sure your license file environment variables are set correctly and then run 'lmutil lmdiag' to diagnose the problem. 

Modelsim - Intel FPGA Edition uses the following environment variables to check the licenses (listed in the order of preference) 

1. MGLS_LICENSE_FILE 

2. LM_LICENSE_FILE. "

Hi, 

 

Have you set “license.dat”? 

If not, then refer following link for “Setting Windows Environment Variables” & then browse the license.dat file in “variable value box “,

Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing or if you need any further assistance.

Check the “Note” under “4.1.2.1 Licensing the Modelsim - Intel FPGA Edition Software” for ModelSim from the following link & refer previous post. 

 

https://www.altera.com/en_us/pdfs/literature/manual/quartus_install.pdf 

 

If you are using ModelSim-Intel FPGA Starter Edition Software then run-as administrator or Run the tool from installation directory itself instead running Modelsim from desktop short-cut. 

 

Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing.
