Hi all,

 

I'm trying to generate the HDL files for a Cyclone-V SoC. Unfortunately, the generation fails with the attached messages:

 

 

 

Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: Error during execution of "{C:/intelfpga_lite/19.1/quartus/../nios2eds/Nios II Command Shell.bat} make all 2>> stderr.txt": child process exited abnormally

There are more messages than this.

 

This same project compiles OK on a Linux platform, the failures are on a Win10 platform. I've tried Quartus 21 and 19 with a patch applied, and the same error persists. Unfortunately the Linux machine is just an old test device, and it takes quite a while to compile.

Any ideas, has anyone else experienced this? Happy to try other things if necessary.

 

Cheers,

 

Alberto

Hi, thanks for your reply. WSL2 is installed on the machine, but the link within the link provided does not work unfortunately!

I had the same issue and after trying the steps that worked for others, I still had the same issue.  What I ended up doing was running Quartus as administrator. 

 

My work laptop had a group policy that prevents .bat files from being ran with standard privileges.  The platform designer makes a call to "Nios II Command Shell.bat" but the error shown looks like WSL is not installed or that "make" was not installed inside WSL.
