Can't get new Quartus Web 5.0 license

I have tried for a while to get a new license for my Quartus Web Edition 5.0.

I have filled out the form as usual and it says license file is coming within 24 hours but nothing arrives. I have done this many times in the past.

A license file isn't required for the web edition. Is there a reason why you need to use a 14-year-old version of the software?

Hi,

Prior to Quartus Web 8.1 requires license & that you can get it from Legacy License Generator tool but beginning with Quartus Q8.1 Web & future versions of Quartus Web & Lite editions don`t required license.

Please refer the below links & keep a backup first.

just provide the NIC & it will ask for email address,

As mentioned in above post, why don`t you use latest license free Quartus prime lite edition instead of this (Q5.0) old version,

please let me know if you have any different concern.

Vicky

Hi Vicky,

 

Thanks for the reply.

This is for some old legacy FPGA projects that I have to recompile sometimes. I have a newer version of Quartus for my latest designs.

Newer software wants to change the format of the project files and I'm not sure they have the support for older devices.

 

I have updated the license many times in the past and I have always received the license file in my email.

This time, there is no email and I am a bit stuck.

 

Thanks

Hi Gary,

Have you worked on my previous post?

have you received any email(which you provided email address) from Intel about license?

Hi Vicky,

 

I tried again to generate a license file and overnight 5 license emails came through!

I think they must have been stuck in the system somewhere but they all came though at once.

Software is licensed again.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Gary
