Altera Monitor Program JTAG issues

Hi, 

 

I've been learning how to use the Monitor program in conjunction with the DE2-115 board for about a week now, and every time I try to load my program to the board, I get an error message saying that the JTAG instance ID isn't correct, and that I need to make sure the .sof and .sopcinfo files are from the same project.  

 

Any ideas as to what might cause this problem, and how to solve it? 

 

I'm currently working on Windows 7 (64bit), with Quartus II 15.0. I've been following the tutorials provided with the DE2-115 development board.

Could you copy the error message and number? Also, maybe try sanity checking that the device ID in the .QSF matches the device you have.

I've stopped using the Monitor program - I don't think I ever got to the bottom of the issue. I'm using Eclipse now, works much better!
