Can you click the Preview Report button and send / post the error report here. It will help debug the issue. Also which version of Quartus and Operating system are you using?
Thank you for the information on the OS (Operating System). What is the IE error details? When you click the "Preview Report" button there should be some details on the IE error.
May I know, what is the Quartus software version that you are using which prompt that error? From your original screen shot on the error, it seems you are using an older Quartus software version. Have you tried using newer version of the Quartus programmer to program the MAX II devices?
