Is there a way to avoid clicking "Start Compilation" multiple times?

When I click "Start Compilation", it will normally fail a couple of times with error message about missing files(regarding inferred RAM), before it starts properly. Once Quartus Prime gets going, it works.

 

Any tips on why Quartus is having problems starting the design?

 

Is there a way to clean out build files?

 

This is with Quartus 19.2.0 Build 57

Hi,

Please check multiple options available under 'Processing' -> 'Start' menu.

"Is there a way to clean out build files?" -- - - - - ether you can do 'Project' -> 'Clean Project' or best way is, close the Quartus tool & delete the 'db' & 'Incremental_db' from project generation directory & then try to compile.

Please let me know, if you have any different concern, also provide error message screenshot.

Regards,

Vicky

Here are the errors. There are lots of them and they are all very similar.

Project -> Clean, resulted in:

 

Error(23035): Tcl error: ERROR: Can't access revision 'myrevisionname'. The revision may not exist, or there may be an error in the revision settings.

 

  while executing

"project_clean -revision $revision"

  invoked from within

"if { ![project_exists $project_name] } {

  post_message -type error "Cannot clean project $project_name: this project doesn't exist"

} else {

  pr..."

  (file "/opt/intelFPGA_pro/19.2/quartus/common/tcl/internal/qsh_clean.tcl" line 81) 

Error(23031): Evaluation of Tcl script /opt/intelFPGA_pro/19.2/quartus/common/tcl/internal/qsh_clean.tcl unsuccessful 

 

 

After cleaning, even though it failed, Quartus started compilation(got past synthesis) fine.

This fixes the Project->Clean error, but I still see the Start Compile error:
