Port "pll_powerdown" does not exist in macrofunction "serdes"

Honored Contributor II

I'm getting the error 'Port "pll_powerdown" does not exist in macrofunction "serdes"' trying to rebuild an old Arria II GX project under Quartos 9.1 (build 350 SP2). 


There is a support note http://www.altera.co.uk/support/kdb/solutions/rd04052011_141.html but that refers to a problem in Quartos 10 web edition. The link to the release notes is completely unhelpful - wrong version. 


I suspect that our last release was built using a very slightly earlier version of quartos, and that the qsys part wasn't regenerated after quartos was updated. 


Any ideas about how to get this built?

Quartus II 9.1 is just too old. Advise is to use newer Quartus II, at least v14.0, 14.1 or 15.0.
