Can't download Quartus software - links broken?

Hi,

I can't seem to download any of the Quartrus prime software installs. I've tried with 3 different browsers (Edge, Chrome & FireFox) and nothing works when trying to download. On the most recent versions, when clicking download link nothing happens. On older versions, the "Legal Disclaimer" pops-up, but then nothing happens afterwards.

 

I've read in earlier discussions that the Java Scripts are not correct or broken. Are they broken again?

Hi Brian,


What type of Quartus version you want to download? I can get a direct link as an alternative for you

Initially I was trying to download 20.1 Lite version, which via Reddit info I was able to do. This however, then failed because that package has an expired USB Blaster driver. The certificate will not allow it to be installed on Windows 10 and my company will not allow unsigned drivers to be installed so that is a NO GO.

What I need is a valid USB-Blaster driver (NOT USB-Blaster II) but there is no way to get just that without installing the entire Quartus.

So now my only hope is to try 21.1 Pro, but every download link has the same Java Script flaw. The problem appears to be in common.js and the line wap_tms.custom.trackDownload(data);. Why can't this be fixed?

You can download drivers on their own here:

(Called "download cable" now instead of USB Blaster)

I still don't see it. The one that is "download cable" not "download cable II" just provides instructions to load the driver from the install location of the Quartus software, which is my case would point to drivers that have expired certificates and can't be installed.

 

The one at the very top seem to only be a firmware update of the actual USB Blaster pod and does not appear to contain any drivers for Windows 10.

 

Which one would contain the actual Windows 10 driver, for USB Blaster, not USB Blaster II?

 

At the top of that page that you've pointed me to is this statement:

"Note: Some cable drivers are not available for download on this page. They are available after you install the Intel Quartus Prime software in the <Quartus Prime Installation Directory>\drivers directory."

Does that link still contain expired Windows 10 drivers thus making it not useful or has the download package been fixed and have updated drivers been packaged?
