sof2flash error

Hi, 

I try to add my applicaiton into CycloneIII application selector. I need to convert .elf and .sof into _sw.flash and _hw.flash files. When I run eek.sh script I got error. I also run the command line and got the same error. The .elf to _sw.flash is converted succesfully. But .sof is not. The error messages is attached(EEK_SH.JPG). I am wondering it is because of license issue or because of something else.  

The first error read: QuartusII convert_programing_file was unsuccessful, but gives no reason. 

Please help.

If file names are correct (and I presume you already checked them...) then you have a problem with paths. Is the .sh file in the same location as .sof? If not, are the relative paths correct? 

I'd suggest you open a shell session and send manually the sof2flash command.

Hi, 

I found a similiar lead for this problem. I think it is the licence issue. 

Thank you for your reply.
