I've been trying to get my PC to talk to the Cyclone III starter kit board, but keep getting the same errors (see attached)."This application has failed to start because jtag_client.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." Alas, reinstalling the software did not fix it. Nor did re-installing the driver for USB-blaster. I'm running XP with service pack 2 installed. Can someone show me a way to get this running? Thanks. Doug .
What's the Quartus version you're using on the respective computer? The error seems mysterious, because jtag_client.dll is present in previous and present Quartus versions.The problem can be expected, if jtag_client.dll has been removed from the quartus/bin directectory, or quartus/bin is missing in the Wndows path definition.
I tried following 2 methods:- copy DE0_ControlPanel.exe to C:\altera\90\qprogrammer\bin and then run it. - copy jtag_client.dll and dinkum_alt.dll to the folder where DE0_ControlPanel.exe was located. Both of them worked.
