Terasic Cyclone III embedded development

Honored Contributor II



As a total newbie to Altera NIO II development I am having problems compiling/fitting a project supplied with a development kit.  


The kit is the Terasic Cyclone III Embedded development kit. The project is:  




That I downloaded from the Terasic website as part of the NIOS II embedded evaluation kit, Cyclone III edition V8.0.1.  


The version of quartus I am using is 11.0.  


After trying to compile the project I am getting the following errors  


(first of all Quartus could not find ddr_sdram_phy_ddr_pins.tcl, I then attempted to make a version from a version of the file on the web and hey presto it created itself)…..

and then at the end of the process…

How can I find out what is not fitting? As the flow summary says…..
