Hello - I am having trouble getting a Mobil compute license for Modelsim working on Windows 10.


When I launch Modelsim, I get the following error:


Unable to checkout a license. Make sure your license file environment variable (e.g., LM_LICENSE_FILE)
is set correctly and then run 'lmutil lmdiag' to diagnose the problem.


I CD to the directory where the license is and run "lmutil lmdiag -c ./license.txt -n

and for each feature, it reports:


"<feature_name>" v2016.100, vendor: mgcld
  uncounted nodelocked license, locked to "FLEXID=9-xxxxxxxx"  starts: 31-dec-2016,   expires: 29-jan-2022


This is the correct node for this node-locked license


This seems like the right result for lmutil but I still cannot start Modelsim - anyth help is appreciated.
