MegaWizard Plug-In Manager didn't generate the .bsf file of IPCore

Honored Contributor I

Hi, everyone. 

I encountered a wierd trouble. 

When I try to add a IPCore into the Block Diagram and generate an IP Core using MegaWizard Plug-In Manager, I got the following warning after the generator works out and said "MegaCore Function Generation successful." 

The Warning said:"Block Symbol File xxxx.bsf is not generated from MegaWizard Plug-In Manager"  

The version of Quartus is 13.3 Lite 

And I'm sure that the path of .bsf file don't contain any space.

I have tried to recreate the warning but it successful to generated .bsf without warning used quartus 13.1 win10. 

Which version of quartus are you using(13.3!)? 

1.Regenerate and check if mega-wizard terminated in between process before generating the file? 

2.Have you checked in project directory for .bsf file?If it is not generated  

Try by deleting incremental_db and db folder or create new project and check. 


Different version of quartus. 


Let me know if you need any further assistance.

I have the same problem with ALTMULT_COMPLEX that can't create the .bsd file. But others MegaCore function like ATLSQRT creates it. Is there a reason why? I tried Quartus 17.0, 17.1, 19.1. I normally install Quartus in D:\intelFPGA\ but I also tried with c:\intelFPGA to see if it was the SW path.


There is no space in my project path... it was D:\testing\


Any clues?
