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.

I am struggling with the same problem....the only solution seems to 
uninstall and install the software again and ask for new license..but it 
is unpractical...it seems the license is linked to the IP

is there another reliable light(size not big)  VHDL simulator to use?
