Altera USB-Blaster driver for Window10

Hi Everybody, 

 

I'm a newbie in Altera tools, and I encountered following problem 

when trying to install the Altera USB-Blaster periperal on a computer 

running Windows 10. 

 

I use the Quartus II 10.0sp1 Programmer. 

 

"Windows encontered a problem during the driver installation of your peripheral 

Windows find a driver for the peripheral, but has encontered an error while trying to install it. 

The hashing of this file is absent in the file catalog specified. 

The file is probably damaged or falsified 

If you know th chip manufacturer, you can visit its web site and consult the technical support section, or Download section to find a pilot for this peripheral." 

 

 

Any help or idea is welcome 

Thanks in advance 

BR

Windows 10 is only supported by quartus 16 and above. 

To run Quartus 10, you'll need to run it on a supported OS, perhaps in a virtual machine.

NadineS, 

I had the same problem. Here is what I did. Since I am oldschool and don't like change, I installed Quartus Prime 16, and used that USB driver. Then I went back to Quartus II 9.0 and everything works great. 

 

I am running Windows 10 and 10Pro and do all my designs in the old Quartus 9.0. 

 

Seems to work OK for me.
