Quartus Prime 22.1 version NativeLink does not work

Hi,

We recently installed Quartus Prime 22.1 standard version on university PCs, and I installed the Lite version on my own laptop. NativeLink doesn't work for both version.  It looks that the modelsim.tcl file has problems, so I copied the modelsim.tcl from version 21.1 and it worked. 

 

Can you confirming this is a acceptable workaround? Quartus has been deployed to all our campus computers, rolling back to the precious version will not be practical in terms of our teaching schedule. Please see the following error message:

This is what in the .rpt file

There is missing " in the qnativelinkflow.tcl file located at "C:\intelFPGA_lite\22.1std\quartus\common\tcl\internal\nativelink"

Open that file and go to line 122 which should say 'set questa_installation "$questa_fse_drectory'

Replaced the line with:

set questa_installation "$questa_fse_directory"


Here's the issue discussed:
