Platform designer crash on save/save as




I am using Quartus Prima 18.1.0 Lite edition on WIN 10.


I have troubles with Platform Designer - it keeps crashing on every "save" or "save as" attempt. JRE fatal error report appears in the project folder, but not much of a help for me.


Anyone encountered similar problem or have suggestion where to look for solution?

Update: I have uninstalled 18.1 version and installed 15.1 (once run on WIN 10 without problems) and the problem persists (even worse)!

Now every time I try running Qsys from Quartus, it crashes almost immediately, not allowing to let me do anything.


I have no idea, where the problem may be, but after wasting the whole day, this is so frustrating.


I'd be grateful for any guidance here.
