Quartus 19.2 warning 20536: Programming file generation feature has been removed....

Hello Forums,

 

I have updated to Quartus 19.2. It's working great, but I get this warning:

Warning(20536): Programming file generation feature has been removed from compilation flow and the corresponding legacy settings in Quartus Prime Setting File (.qsf) have been ignored. Please use Programmer File Generator or Convert Programming File Tool to generate programming file.

The compilation finishes properly, and a .sof file is produced. I assume this would be related to a .pof file?

 

What legacy .qsf settings does this warning refer to?

 

Thanks for the assistance.

Hi,

You can ignore this warning.

'The compilation finishes properly, and a .sof file is produced. I assume this would be related to a .pof file?' --- --- -- Yes, It is related to generate secondary programming files.The Programming File Generator separates the generation of configuration files with the generation of bitstreams that contain the design logic. This ability allows you to define flash partitions, and also generate several programming files simultaneously. The Programming File Generator tool is available in the Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition software versions 18.0 and later. For details refer the links below,

'What legacy .qsf settings does this warning refer to?' ------ --- -- It might be due to quartus update has done from older version by you.

Vicky

Thank you for your assistance.

 

The links you provided led me to find this setting in mt .qsf file:

set_global_assignment -name GENERATE_RBF_FILE ON

Removing this or setting it to off removed the warning.
