Why do I get this error when generating a NIOS®  II system? "Encrypted license not found. Defaulting to OCP evaluation license (produces a time-limited SOF)"


This error occurs when generating a NIOS II system with SOPC Builder if are you using an evaluation license for the Quartus® II software.

To avoid this problem, specify the location of the license for the full version of the software. For more information, refer to the Quartus II Installation & Licensing for PCs Manual or Quartus II Installation & Licensing for UNIX and Linux Workstations Manual
