I recovered a project created by a collegue who is not available now... I have no information about which IDE was use and i discover Quartus II environment...
I found a CD with Quartus II 7.2, i try to open the project (.qar and .qpf are present inside the folder). A pop up alert me that the project have been created with Quartus II Version 4.0 Build 214 3/25/2004 Service Pack 1 SJ Full Version. I downloaded this version, ask for a licence.
If a try to open the qpf, i have the same message : "Do you want to overwrite the database for project C:... created by Quartus II Version 4.0 Build 214 3/25/2004 Service Pack 1 SJ Full Version? The database format is incompatible with the current version of Quartus II software...."
If a try to open the .qar, i have this message : "Support for device EP20K600EFI672-2X not installed -- switching to an appropriate device from the available devices..."
I tried to create a new project but the APEX is not available on Quartus 4.0 and 7.2, It's available on 9.0. When i open the .qar with quartus 9.0, i haven't message about compatibility. But the project doesn't build. file exemplar.lmf is missing. I'm sure that the project is complete (i have 4 different version of the project), so i suppose that the missing file is due to a wrong Quartus Version? I have electrical wiring of the board, i suppose is possible to re create the mapping but i'm not sure is the best idea.
Anyone can help me please?
