Hi,

 

I got the error stated above and when checked the file exists.

Then on checking got a link having a workaround

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/knowledge-base/soluti...

 

But even after reinstalling around for 10times, the issue still exists.

The screen shot attached below.

 

Then thinking that the file downloaded might have been bad, redownloaded the individual file and tried installing and ended up with the same result.

 

Can anyone please let me know what else could be done.

Please help.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Nanjunda M

Hi Nanjunda,

 

Is your dll issue solved by reinstalling? I have installed the Quietus 19.1 pro on windows 10.i did not face any issue.

 

Regarding driver installation it may fail if the required driver already installed try by manually installing.

Attached the image

 

Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing or if you need any further assistance.

Hi Nanjunda,

 

 

May be due antivirus software contact your IT.

To confirm that, can you disconnect from office network and launch Quartus as administrator.

 

If same issue is faced try by installing it in different machine.

Hi Anand,

 

I tried the disconnecting network and installing the same machine I see still the issue exists.

I'll try it with different machine.

 

I have attached a screenshot of the issue in driver installation.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Anand,

I Checked this topic.

Actually I have exactly the same issue like you.

I read the discussion, but It seems I don't see the solution.

Installing Quartus 19.1 Prime Pro on Windows 10 is really headache to me..

I installed  Quartus on 4 PCs successfully but on 2 PCs failed.

Today I tried to install on 7th PC and met the same issue "Can't open editor -- can't load library "pgm_pgmwq.dll". The speccified module could not be found"

 

May I ask for you sharing the experience ? Thanks.

Hi, I am facing the same problem and able to fix it if I install it using administrator access (right-click the installer and run as administrator).
