Failed to generate sof with error: Unlicensed IP: "Nios II Processor(6AF7 00A2)"

I failed to generate sof with Nios + PLDA rich3. But I can generate sof which only include Nios or PLDA. 

 

I use Quartus version 18.1.2,

Error shows: eoor.jpg

Which version of the NIOS2 processor are you using - NIOS2 - e/f? The 'e' variant is free while the 'f' is licensed. If you do not have a license for the NIOS2/f variant, then change it to NIOS2/e and compile. It should work.

I do have Nios license. And when running assembler, quartus will require twice with 1 successful and 1 unsuccessful.

Hi Jiayi Hu, That's a license issue. Please choose NIOS II/e to avoid this. Go to Qsys> NIOS II properties and chose the e core instead of the f core . Regards,

Issue is resolved by updating tools to Quartus 19.1
