Qsys (Platform Designer) seq: add_fileset_file: No such file .. hps_AC_ROM.hex

I'm regenerating a hps system with the Platform Designer and receive a couple of errors during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl

 

Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: Error during execution of "{C:/intelfpga/19.1/quartus/../nios2eds/Nios II Command Shell.bat} make all 2>> stderr.txt": child process exited abnormally Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: Execution of command "{C:/intelfpga/19.1/quartus/../nios2eds/Nios II Command Shell.bat} make all 2>> stderr.txt" failed Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: child process exited abnormally Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: add_fileset_file: No such file C:/Users/__nnn__/AppData/Local/Temp/alt8344_7417580866586908393.dir/0004_seq_gen/hps_AC_ROM.hex Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: Generation stopped, 3 or more modules remaining Error: border: Execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl failed

I am using Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18363.720]

Quartus installation: LAST_QUARTUS_VERSION "19.1.0 SP0.02std Standard Edition"

 

I found literally the same error description here:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/knowledge-base/tools/...

 

But the work around ist not useable because this is for Linux Operating Systems only. It shouldn't appear on a Windows machine...

 

Does anyone have had the same problem or maybe has a solution?

 

Sincerely yours,

Mirco

Hi Kenny,

 

I've tried this and it works great.

 

To install / activate wls I used this information: https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/windows/wsl/install-win10

 

I have successfully generated the HPS core and compiled the Quartus Project using Quartus Version 19.1.0 SP0.02std Standard Edition on a Windows 10 OS.

 

Thank you very much!

I am running into the same issue. Curious if the (exactly) six (6) months since the last post were enough to address this error.  Using Quartus 20.1 (installed this week) (and didn't dare using AMD CPU - running on Intel Xeon )

Thanks - M.

Hi,
I can confirm that the workaround installing WSL does work. 
Perhaps I should have been more patient and try it first but it was yet another hurdle - fighting the whole Saturday with Intel documents with broken links. (If you ask me - the Altera transition was far from being smooth).
It was a bit softer than I thought since I didn't have to install Linux version of Quartus but simple presence of the (Ubuntu 20) makes Quartus behave.
On top of that https://www.intel.com/content/altera-www/global/en_us/index/support/support-resources/knowledge-base... announced this as fixed in February and yet another service pack later it doesn't seem so.

Life goes on.
Thanks - M

Further investigation, if the patch above does not work. You may use the workaround mention below:

 

- uninstalled Ubuntu 18.04 (If you have)

- uninstalled wsl  

- re-installed wsl

- downloaded latest Ubuntu 18.04 from Microsoft Shop & installed it

- executed following on Ubuntu shell :   

   sudo apt-get update

   sudo apt install wsl 

  sudo apt install dos2unix

  sudo apt install make 

  sudo apt-get upgrade

I have a similar issue with 20.1. I'm trying to build a project which builds fine in 18.1, at the Qsys generation stage I get the following errors:

 

Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: Error during execution of "{C:/intelfpga/20.1/quartus/../nios2eds/Nios II Command Shell.bat} make all 2>> stderr.txt": child process exited abnormally

Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: Execution of command "{C:/intelfpga/20.1/quartus/../nios2eds/Nios II Command Shell.bat} make all 2>> stderr.txt" failed

Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: seq: child process exited abnormally

Error: border: Error during execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl: Generation stopped, 3 or more modules remaining

Error: border: Execution of script generate_hps_sdram.tcl failed

 

I have ensured the TEMP variables are defined as local, on the C drive. Not sure why it has JONATH~1 in the path.

 

I am on Windows 10.0.18362

As per mention in above,

 

To install / activate wls : https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/windows/wsl/install-win10

 

Or do it like the above mention.
