Problem with PCI compiler in QuartusII v11.0

Hi everyone. 

I've got a strange problem. I want to add a PCI Compiler in my Qsys system (QuartusII v11.0) but I can't find it. In QuartusII v9.0 in SOPC it was located in Interface Protocols/PCI category. 

I checked XML file altera_components.ipx and found this entry: 

<component 

name="altera_avalon_pci_compiler" 

file="pci_compiler/lib/ip_toolbench/pci_megacore.jar" 

displayName="PCI Compiler" 

version="11.0" 

description="Altera PCI Megacore" 

tags="AUTHORSHIP=Altera Corporation /// CONNECTION_TYPES=avalon" 

categories="Interface Protocols/PCI" 

factory="JarFactory" /> 

So I think this is some kind of bug in QuartusII v11.0. Does anybody know something about workaround of this issue?

I think it's the one in the Mega function wizard not in the components tab.

I found the solution to my problem. 

PCI compiler core was located in Interface Protocols/PCI category in sopc builder not in Qsys. So I created SOPC system with PCI core, saved it and then opened it in Qsys. 

This method is kind of clumsy but it works)

I was talking about PCI compiler. PCI express is different animal )
