I'm trying to use the control panel app that comes with the altera cyclone III starter kit (the one without the LCD made by terasic). I've downloaded all the latest software.
I have the same problem using: cycloneIII_3c25_start_v11.0.0.exe for the kit files 11.0_quartus_free_windows.exe for Quartus 11.0_programmer_windows.exe for stand-alone programmer I have Win7-64 bit. I had trouble with the JTAG programmer seeing the kit, but after reading a number of posts, I installed the stand-alone programmer (above) and that somehow fixed the integrated one as well. I used that to program the "cycloneIII_3c25_start_niosII_standard.sof" file into the FPGA, then quit the programmer and ran "control_panel.exe" I get this error: "Could not establish JTAG connection between the board and control panel application." Any help would be great. Thanks!
