Problem running BeMicroSDK tutorial in NioII EDS 10.1

Honored Contributor II



Sorry for many questions on the BeMicroSDK. Appreicate any input and advice. 


On building the tutorial (BeMicro_SDK_Embedded_System_SW_Lab_v1_21.pdf) on Nios EDS 10.1, there is no response from the Nios II console. I've tried from scratch several times, including reinstalling the whole IDE, unfortunately nothing helped. The NiosII console remained blank. 



The difference noticed is on page 26 - while the PDF file read (first screen on the page): 


Downloading 04000020 ( 0%) 


Starting processor at address 0x04000184 



my console read  


Using cable "USB-Blaster [USB-0]", device 1, instance 0x00 

Resetting and pausing target processor: OK 

Reading System ID at address 0x080002A8: verified 

Initializing CPU cache (if present) 


downloading 00000020 ( 0%) 

downloading 00010000 (70%) 

downloaded 92kb in 1.6s (57.5kb/s) 

verifying 00000020 ( 0%) 

verifying 00010000 (70%) 

Verified OK  

Starting processor at address 0x000001B4 



Note that the value after "Download", mine is considerably smaller than in the tutorial, i.e. [00]000020 vs [04]... 


Is my NioII build broken so there is no response in the NioII console? The processor not even started? 


Thank you in advance for any help.
