Hi! 

 

I'm using Altera Monitor Programm (3.2) with Quartus II 8.0 Web Edition. When I try to complie the assemble file from the altera tutorial "Introduction to the Altera SOPC Builder Using VHDL Design", it always gives out this error: 

 

Error running nios2-elf-as. (java.lang.NullPointerException) 

 

Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem? Thanks!

Please add the environment variable SOPC_BUILDER_PATH and set it to anything. 

 

This is a known bug which is fixed in the upcoming release of the Monitor Program.
