Nios ii upds

Honored Contributor II

Hi all, 


I have Quartus II 9.1 along with DE1 and DE2 boards. My desire is to have a NIOS II processor running on the DE2. I can build my own in SOPC builder, but I want to use the Altera Monitor Program with a pre-designed DE2/NIOS II that I believe I saw is available. 


So, I downloaded the EDS and tried to install the UPDS, but it complains "Altera University Design Program Suite requires NIOS II to be installed". 


Do I have to buy an IP core, or what am I missing?
