Hi,

I installed ModelSim PE Student Edition 10.1 on Windows 7 32-bit OS in 
January 2012. I am able to compile the verilog files without any error. 
But when i try to load the design for simulation i get the error message 
as shown below. I copied the "student_license.dat" file into the 
installation directory of ModelSim as specified in email from Mentor 
Graphics.

Please provide a solution to this problem. Thanks in advance.

you have to define a environment variable 
LM_LICENSE_FILE="pathtolicencefile/licensefile"

I defined a environment variable "LM_LICENSE_FILE" pointing to the 
"student_license.dat" file, but i am still getting the same error 
message as described previously.

I have installed Model Sim in E: drive instead of the default C: drive. 
Is the error occuring due to installation in a non-default location ?

Check your lincens setup with the programs "lmtool" or "Licensing 
Wizard".

Modelsim PE does not support coverage without an optional package. Have 
you tried to start the simulation without -coverage ?

I tried loading the design by removing the coverage option. But, i am 
still getting the same error message.
