I'm a beginner in FPGA, and recently bought a Cyclone 10 LP evaluation kit. I'm going through the get started guide(Get Started: Intel® Cyclone® 10 LP FPGA kit ), and encounter some difficulties. Quartus Prime Lite Edition was downloaded.
The problem started at step 4 in the guide, when I typed "nios2-terminal" in Nios II command shell, the response I got was "command not found".
I installed WSL and ubuntu as suggested when opening Nios II command shell.
I went ahead and continued to step 6, where I was supposed to run "BoardTestSystem.exe", the program was stuck at "Setup connection to System Console server..."

What was your solution? For me BoardTestSystem.exe also hangs at "Setup connection to System Console server..."
For me I found that if I launch Quartus 20.3 first, then launch BoardTestSystem.exe it can run, but if I launch Quartus 22.3 (latest) first it can not run.
I found in my case the cause is that some MSVCRXX.dll files are missing. Once the needed .dll file is installed (I don't know which one because I installed a bunch of them before testing) I was able to run BoardTestSystem.exe.
From my limited experience, my suggestion to your situation is to check your system environment variable setup. Since you have two version of Quartus installed, it may be setup only for one version.
Hope this helps.
