Error executing : save_system('Arria_II_GX_EP2AGX125_alteradspbuilder2', 'Arria_II_GX_EP2AGX125_alteradspbuilder2'); 

Previous command was : set_param('Arria_II_GX_EP2AGX125_alteradspbuilder2/PB1', 'Position', [160 312 200 358]); 

Error using save_system (line 38) 

An error occurred during a callback while saving 

'C:\altera\12.1sp1\quartus\dsp_builder\bin\mdllibrary\Arria_II_GX_EP2AGX125_alteradspbuilder2.slx'. 

The previously saved version of this file (if any) has not been changed. 

 

 

Error in save_system (line 38)

thanks very much ,it may be the problem when save as the .slx file.

DSP Builder 12.1 doesn't support slx files. You could change your MATLAB preferences to make mdl files the default until that issue is fixed.
