Altera Max V CPLD Development Board problem

I am using Altera Max V CPLD Development Board version 11.1. The user manaul for Board Test System software shows a Config menu option to allow the user to reprogram the CPLD with some standard examples each of which have their own tab folder in the software. However, my installation has only File and About options with no Config and all the tabs are disabled except for the GPIO tab. 

 

Anyone know how I can access these other configurations? Why don't I have a Config menu option? I downloaded the latest version 11.1? 

 

thanks!

I've noticed missing FPGA download/configure options in some of the BTS GUIs. The "solution" is to use Quartus to download the appropriate .sof file from the kit install area, and then re-run the GUI. The GUI will then detect what image is already configured and activate the appropriate tab. 

 

Cheers, 

Dave

Hi folks, 

 

I have exactly the same issue with my MAX V Development Board. BTS doesn't show the configuration menu... 

I tried to load my CPLD with the programmer and the files in the examples folder but still. 

 

Thanks for your help :)

Did you solve this problem with Config not showing up? I am having this problem and I don't know where in Quartus to get the .sof file. 

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks, 

Bill
