This means Quartus has crashed. You may need to raise a mysupport ticket to find out why.

you can also check your system logfiles. You might find something there. Is it a reoccurring error or just a one-off.

It error always happens in the versions 16.0, 17.1. 

After this error, I need to restart my computer because the USBblaster does not work after that.

Quit Quartus and trash the db and incremental_db folders for your project. You'll need to recompile, but this might fix the issue. 

 

You may also need to reinstall USB Blaster drivers.

You didn't actually tell when it happens, e.g. compiling a specific project, in which phase, etc.

This is usually indicating that part of Quartus is still running. To terminate it without restarting Windows, you can use the task manager.

If I program separately, everything is programmed correctly and works. 

If all four together, then a complete collapse occurs.
