I've installed Quartus Prime 16.1 Lite Edition, on my new laptop (Dell 8Gb RAM, Windows 7 pro installed), the installation went without problems, but I can't get it to launch after that, I've tried reinstalling it few times without success.When I installed "Intel FPGA Monitor Program 16.1 ", I didn't have this problem with it Any ideas on how I might solve this problem ? I'm guessing that it is a missing DLL but I don't have a way to verify that I'd appreciate the help
What exactly happens when you try to start Quartus? Sometimes it takes a while for the program to start, and with only 8 GB of RAM in your machine, that could be part of the issue. Does it show up in Task Manager?

I looked that up. It's part of the university program? It's not really Quartus.Can you try installing in a different location or maybe try an external drive? I can't think of any reason why you would have a problem starting the program.
What I tried to do : I installed it on a windows 7 VM, the problem here is that for compiling I need to setup a JTAG server on the host machine and to do that, I need to open Quartus, so that doesn't solve it (maybe there is another way to configure a JTAG server that I'm not aware of).For the problem, I though that it may be because of a missing DLL, do you know what DLLs might cause this problem if they are missing?
No, I don't. What VM software are you using? I run Quartus on a standard Windows 10 machine but I also run it on a Mac through a Parallels VM with no problems.I'm not sure what you mean by a "JTAG server." A JTAG connection, usually using a USB-Blaster pod or circuitry on a dev kit, is required to the device for programming. If you don't want to install full Quartus, you can just download and install the Quartus Programmer from the download site.
I'm using virtual box, for JTAG server part, it was the instructions that I found when looking why I couldn't program with it.I need to configure a SOC (as part of a course I'm taking), can I do that with the Quartus programmer? we're doing it with Qsys.
Yes, you can configure the device if you have a programming file, but you need to be able to compile your Qsys system design using Quartus to generate that.
So, what you're suggesting is that I do the compilation/simulation ... using Quartus on my VM then use the programmer to programmer the board, am I correct ?
