QSYS 17 .0 pro missing .sopcinfo

I have a qsys nios design that is working fine in Quartus 16.1 pro. 

Did an upgrade to Quartus 17.0 prime pro and after re-generating the qsys project, the <project>.sopcinfo file was removed and never recreated. 

The software BSP still requires this file, thus I can't compile any new software on a Q17.0pro generated Nios system. 

 

Is this a bug or are there some new way to generate the .sopcinfo file? Any known work arounds? 

Anyone else seen this?

I'm presuming you are using an Arria 10 device. It should be there in the same directory as the .qsys file. I don't think the file locations were moved around between 16.1 and 17.0. Maybe try trashing the generated system's folder and regenerating.

Found it. 

The <project>.sopcinfo file used to be generated into the same path as the <project>.qsys file. Now it's placed in the generated <project> folder. Makes sense to have all generated files in the same place. 

Also all sub components (under the ip/ folder) gets their own .sopcinfo 

 

In eclipse Nios-SBT you can't edit the BSP to reference a new .sopcinfo so you have to manually edit the settings.bsp file to point to the new location. Or create a new BSP for the QSYS 17.0 project.
