boardtestsystem not run

Dear Support, 

I installed quartus 21.3, on win10 64. I proved the usb cable is working by programming the FPGA on the A10GX dev board. 

when I run BoardTesSystem.exe, 

after I "select version directly" to PRD. 

I got a pop up saying, "Failed to connect to system console server."

I guess I did something wrong, I have searched the database, but didn't find anything like directly to this error message, please help me get this BoardTest system.exe run. 

Thank you,

 

David

Hello

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. May I know, have you tested BTS with Quartus v15.1.2? If not, could you try it?

Based on my understanding, the manufactured board’s BTS for A10GX was built with Quartus v15.1.2. The error is possibly caused by the difference in system console of different Quartus revisions. Can refer to readme.txt file in BTS installation folder.

Also, could you help to set all DIP switch back to factory default state. You could refer to web regarding this.

There is also a log file in the BTS directory, customer can use this to check the reason of failure.

 

Report back if failure happen with the log file and error screenshot.

It's not easy to install a win7 or install a Quartus V15. I know most of the time there is no shortcut, if someone had met this problem before, it may save me hours of installation of outdated software. because it is for learning to board and tools in very short term. 

attached is the log file and screen capture. 

I hope someone understands what this line means.

SEVERE: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "C:\intelFPGA_pro\21.3\quartus/sopc_builder/bin/system-console": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

 

Thank you very much,

David

Hello,


Is this the board you are using now?

link : https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/details/fpga/development-kits/arria/10-gx.html

We will try debug at the same board. please confirm if this is the same board.


regards,

Farabi

Hi Farabi, 

 

I installed a win7 and Quartus 18.1.0. now I can run 

boardtestsystem successfully. 

 

it is good news that my board and process is good,  it is a good step forward. 

 

the bad news is that even on win7. I couldn't run Altera_pcie_gui. 

I have another thread in the forum.

please have a look if you are familiar with the PCie and program.

Thank you very much.
