1.6.1. Specifying a Single User License

To license the Intel® FPGA software, you can direct the software to retrieve a license file automatically, or you can manually request a license file from the Intel FPGA Licensing Center

To obtain and specify a license file, follow these steps:

  1. Start the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. If the software does not detect a license, you are prompted to evaluate, license, or buy the software.
  2. Request a license file using one of the following methods:
    If the Intel® Quartus® Prime software retrieves a fixed license file successfully, skip the remaining licensing steps and begin using the software.
  3. If you request a license file from the Intel FPGA Licensing Center, Intel® emails you the license file text and an attached file. After obtaining the license email, use the attached license file to specify licensing settings in the Intel® Quartus® Prime License Setup (Tools > License Setup).
  4. In the License file box, specify the full path name of the license.dat file.
  5. Specify the host NIC ID, as Identifying Host's NIC ID describes.
  6. Click OK. You can begin using the software.

    Note: If you do not receive a license email within 12 hours of the request, or if you require additional information to complete the process, login or register for a My-Intel account, and then submit a Support case requesting license support.
