Currently, it occurs when I click on the "Devices and Pins" tab and try to reset a Dual Function pin. This error is occurring with an Arria10 using version 18.1 Pro on Windows 10.
In the past, I would get this error when scanning a JTAG chain that contained a 64Mbit device. This error occurs on all versions above 16.0 on both Windows 7 and Windows 10 machines.
Just created a simple project with Quartus 19.1 pro for Arria 10 soc Development kit having EPCQL1024 flash device.
I was able to scan the jtag chain and program both sof/jic file successfully, Also change or view the Devices and Pins option.
Please try with Quartus 19.1pro.
