I'm having trouble beginning any simulation in Quartus Prime 18.1

I've recently downloaded Quartus Prime Pro 18.1. I'm trying to get even a basic simulation started so I can work from there. I followed this guide here:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/ug/ug_gs_msa_qii.pdf

 

And downloaded the example file, but I think this guide was written for a different version. For example, there is no Tools ➤ Options ➤ EDA Tool Options in my Quartus Prime. My Assignments ➤ Settings ➤ EDA Tool Settings ➤ Simulation looks quite different, and doesn't have the NativeLink section, so I can't start any simulation.

 

I can go to Tools ➤ Generate Simulator Setup Script for IP, but when I click it, I get this error message:

 

Error: 2019.01.17.18:10:20 Error: Device family cyclonev is not supported by ::quartus::sim_lib_info. 

 

Are there any good step by step instructions on how to get started with the simulations?

Hi Eric,

Good day.

 

Quartus Pro doesn't support the Native Links options but only in Quartus Standard.

Refer the previous thread with similar issue.

Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing or if you need any further assistance.

Thank you.

Hi Calvin,

 

I can go to Tools ➤ Generate Simulator Setup Script for IP, but when I click it, I get this error message:

 

Error: 2019.01.17.18:10:20 Error: Device family cyclonev is not supported by ::quartus::sim_lib_info. 

 

Do I need to install the Cyclone V board?

Hi Eric,

 

Which device you're using? If you're using Quartus Pro, It doesn't support Cyclone V devices.

Refer link below.

Thank you.

The device I'm compiling for is a Cyclone 10 GX, so according to that it should work. I believe I'm getting the error because the simulator setup script is also trying to set up for the Cyclone V. Is there any way of altering that?
