Hi all, I've just installed Quartus II 10.0 and SP1 and I've found that everything (like programmer etc.) is opening as a detached window. It is quite useful to be able do detach the window, but I personally prefer to have everything attached. The problem is, that I am unable to find where to disable this feature. For example when I open Quartus Help for the options of the Programmer, there is written that in the Options dialog box should be these checkboxes:Show checksum without usercode Initiate configuration after programming Display message when programming finishes Enable real-time ISP to allow background programming Halt on-chip configuration controller Automatically check the Program/Configure checkbox when adding SOF Configure volatile design security key for Stratix III devices Use bitstream compression to configure devices when available Automatically open as detached window PFL / enhanced SFL run CRC check for faster verification Use enhanced Serial flash Loader (SFL) IP as factory default image Check block CRCs to accelerate PFL/SFL verification when available Unprotect EPCS devices selected for the erase/program operation But when I open the Options dialog, there are two options missing: Automatically open as detached window PFL / enhanced SFL run CRC check for faster verification The options are the same when the programmer is detached and attached. Am I missing something? I also found that there aren't any registry entries for the Quartus 10.0 anymore, so I cannot find any way how to set this checkbox without a GUI. Is there any configuration file that can be altered to get this work? Martin
Sorry if this post seems a little obvious, but I am quite new to Quartus II myself...I've noticed that some of the Quartus Help pages have extra options and things which aren't in my version of Quartus II (10.0 Web edition with SP1) I am assuming that these options and features are available within the subscription edition but the help files have been kept the same for both of the current versions of Quartus II. Sorry that doesn't help a lot, but might explain why there were options missing.
Well, no, this is not this case. The option should be there even in the web edition version. This is a bug in the Quartus software. I just don't know any workaround for this other than waiting for new version of Quartus... But I am pretty sure that there must be some configuration file or registry entry for this, to change this behavior without the IDE.Martin
