You can download the Cyclone device libraries from here:

 

http://download.altera.com/akdlm/software/acdsinst/13.1/162/ib_installers/cyclone_web-13.1.0.162.qdz

 

After downloading , install the device files via Quartus Device installer (Standalone) or via the Tools menu in Quartus II

​Abe,

Thanks for the update. I appreciate that.  I tried to install it from the Tools menu. I was not able to install from there. How can I install the device from Quartus Device Installer? I am not sure how it can be done. Can you please explain the steps?

Hi Riddhi,

Download the device Cyclone III(specific Subscription/ Web Edition) from Download center and then open Device Installer(Quartus 13.1) windows start menu or

Quartus "Tools" option(If available) to install the device.

Refer the below link & screenshot,

​​Thanks Vikas for the update. I have followed above listed steps. However, whenever I am trying to install device under the tools menu. I am getting a message which reads as shown in the attached figure. So, I tried to locate that file and tried to open it from there to quartus II. But, it doesn't let me install the device either. I am not what can be done in such case.1.jpg

You did try to launch the one that comes with Quartus II . what the message says is you have to use the Standalone device installer.. This will be present in the Windows start menu under Quartus -> Device Installer. Use this version of the device installer to add the device support.
