The compilation of the PCI Express Avalon-MM High-Performance DMA Reference Design for Stratix V fails in Quartus Prime Standard Edition 18.1. The errors say that the IP components need to be upgraded. I have tried to upgrade the top.qsys in the Platform Designer but when I click the Generate HDL, the generation finishes with errors when I include synthesis and finishes with warnings if I leave it out. Which ever I choose however, the resulting compilation fails and tells me some IP components still need to be upgraded. I do not know what to do, all my attempts to get this design to compile have not worked.
The .QSF file says the original Quartus version is 18.1.0 which is the version that I have installed. I have no idea why the design does not work, the software is the right version but the design fails to compile and says that the IP needs to be updated which also fails. Additionally, I tried a different IP design for Stratix V and that one also failed to compile, because the design was "too big for the FPGA" and used too many pins. Both of these designs are specific for my FPGA and my software but nothing actually works. Please help.
This design should create with old quartus version. Looks like it is create with QII 13.0 with some patches. I just use 14.0 and I can open it correct and compile successful.
