1.6.2.1. Specifying the License File with the LM_LICENSE_FILE or ALTERAD_LICENSE_FILE Environment Variable

You can specify the Intel® Quartus® Prime software license location with the LM_LICENSE_FILE or ALTERAD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable.
To specify the license file:
  1. Close the software if it is open.
  2. Set the LM_LICENSE_FILE or ALTERAD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable using the Control Panel (Windows) or by editing your .cshrc or .bashrc file (Linux).
    Note: Linux: You must source your .cshrc or .bashrc file before restarting the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. See the topic on setting up the Linux environment for more details.
  3. Start the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
Note: The license file setting in the License Setup dialog box supersedes the LM_LICENSE_FILE or ALTERAD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable setting.
