Change Visual Studio to Eclipse IDE

Hi!

 

I am using Intel High Level Synthesis compiler with Eclipse IDE. When I run the initialization command

init_hls.bat

I get to see the error "Visual Studio link.exe is not on the path". How can I configure it to use the Eclipse IDE instead of Visual Studio?

 

Thanks in advance,

Intel HLS requires Vistual Studio 2015 for compilation. Eclipse is mainly used for Embedded applications targeting NIOS & ARM. GCC toolchain on Windows is used for NIOS and ARM compilation only. If you'd like to use GCC toolchain you will need to use a Linux workstation and the Linux version of Intel Tools.

Well, some docs suggested that you can configure Eclipse IDE for HLS development.

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/documentation/xfy1510159781700.html

Because, I could not find Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 which was prescribed for Intel Quartus Prime Standard edition in my region. Hence, I installed with Eclipse IDE.

 

But, it looks like still I need to use the Visual Studio 2010 edition.

 

Please resolve this issue and give a clear answer.

Well, the document also states that you need Linux to configure and work with Eclipse and HLS . On Windows platform you can only use Visual studio​
