I have a big qsys file (platform designer) Quartus Pro 19.4. I migrated successfully to 20.3.
I tried migrating from 20.3 to 20.4 I get this error:
Info: E:/Buildscript/LPUX274_20_4/src/qsys/ip/**/* matched 39 files in 0.08 seconds
Error: Factory com.altera.sopcfactories.QsysFactory reading E:\Buildscript\LPUX274_20_4\src\qsys\qsys.qsys exception com.altera.utilities.altNode.AltNodeException: (in-memory string): Invalid byte 3 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence. (XML)
I haven't see this error before.
Which OS that you are using? Have you try to clean and rebuild your project?
Could you help to share your design so we could check on this?
I tried to open the qsys.qsys file that you provided.
Unfortunately I don't see the error message pop up, other than the warning messages pop up saying a lot of IP files missing.
Have you try to uninstall/reinstall the Quartus and try to migrate the project again?
Sorry for the delay in response. I just back from CNY break.
I open the new qsys file again and I got the same scenario as the previous file - not able to duplicate the error and system completed with warnings saying: Failed to instantiate file.
Here's the flow that I go through. Let me know if there is a different flow with yours.
1. Open a new project in Quartus Pro 20.4
2. Add the qsys.qsys file in the project
3. Launch the IP upgrade editor.
4. Open the qsys file in Platform Designer.
5. System completed with warnings. (see below)
Hi Shyan Yew
You must have 2 qsys.qsys file (sorry with the same name). One in 20.3 (sent by SLabe) and the other one in 20.4 that I sent by e-mail.
The one in 20.4 doesnt ask for upgrade when I follow your steps and gives the error.
Make sure you choose this part for the project
Hi Shyan Yew,
Here are the steps I just performed on the latest qsys Ben_C sent you. Note we are all running in Windows.
1. Created new project with 10AX057H3F34I2LG
2. Added qsys.qsys to project
3. Both of these give the same result
a) Open IP upgrade editor and then click "Upgrade in Editor"
b) Double click qsys.qsys in the project files to launch Editor
At the outcome the following XML warnings will be generated:
Finally, I am able to duplicate the error in Window 10 platform. Previously I did it in Linux platform thus showing different result.
I will check with our engineering team for further investigation.
May I know how do you migrate the previous qsys.qsys file version 20.3 to 20.4?
When I open the previous qsys file 20.3 in the Quartus 20.4 in Window 10, there is no error produced.
1)open quartus project
2)open qsys.qsys (no errors)
3) Sync System infos
4) save (same xml error occurred while saving)
With GIT, I can see all my IPs are now 20.4 instead of 20.3 and qsys has many changes
6) Reverted qsys.qsys
7) Open qsys.qsys
9) Save (same xml error occurred while saving)
