After the installation of Intel Quartus Pro 19.2 version, I observe there are two executable's in the bin64 folder (C:\intelquartus\19.2\quartus\bin64) path: quartus.exe and qpro.exe, What is the correct executable to open the Quartus?

Hello: Reg the .exe to open quartus pro software:

 

After the installation of Intel Quartus Pro 19.2 version, I observe there are two executable's in the bin64 folder (C:\intelquartus\19.2\quartus\bin64) path: quartus.exe and qpro.exe, What is the correct executable to open the Quartus? 

 

Why there are two executable's to open the software?

What is the use of the quartus.exe if qpro.exe is used to open the quartus pro software ?

Hi Vicky I understand that qpro.exe is used to open the Quartus Pro software, but i want to understand why the quartus.exe executable is present along with the qpro.exe in the bin64 folder ?

Hi Venu,

If you refer the last link of previous post, it is mentioned that along with Quartus Pro you will get Standard edition licence too.

Vicky
