Altera ModelSim Starter edition license error

(1/5) > >>

deephaven:
I thought I would have a go with Altera ModelSim. I already have Quartus II 14.1 Web Edition installed and running fine, compiling my designs. However, when I try to run ModelSim, it complains with 'Fatal License Error' saying it is unable to checkout a license. I have carefully made sure that I ran the Altera Starter Edition including selecting that option during the installation process and it says that no license is required. I tried installing it on a different computer but I get exactly the same message when I try to run it. The first computer was 64 bit Windows 7, the other one was 32 bit Windows 7.

Do I need some sort of license file to keep it happy, even though Altera says it doesn't need it?

miguelvp:
I think you have to enable the talkback for that to work. Let me check where the setting is at.

miguelvp:
It's on: Tools->Options under General->Internet Connectivity and click on the TalkBack Options button.

Under Enable check the "Enable sending TalkBack data to Altera" it only sends metadata not your projects.

Edit: that menu is in Quartus II btw.

Many thanks, I am indebted to you. I don't think I would ever have found that. I did do a lot of web searching for the answer before asking here.

miguelvp:
Not a problem, Quartus II 14.1 Web Edition is free so they do require you enable the talkback for some of the functionality including also SignalTap.

In that dialog box you can find details on what where the data that is sent is stored in case you want to know more about what it's being sent. I did look at it a while back and it didn't look too intrusive.
