Quartus Prime 20.1 Lite Edition

I'm a university student and I'm working on Quartus Prime 20.1 Lite edition for the first time. I have a task where I'm supposed to follow the create your first FPGA device steps-https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/how-to-program-your-first-fpga-device.html . My laptop always freezes after Step 1. We are supposed to create a new project but my laptop keeps failing in doing so (I guess there's something wrong with the laptop or I'm missing something essential). The new project is supposed to be created in my C: drive, but the process is never completed. I once tried to create the new project in my OneDrive documents folder and succeeded but Quartus denied using the file as it wasn't authorised.

It crashes from just creating the project with the New Project Wizard?  I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling Quartus.  Sounds like a bad installation.

 

Or maybe you need to put the project in a different directory.  You're putting it in the Quartus installation directory.

Hi @Ahan1 

 

Try to download again the installation files from the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/downloads/download-center.html and re-install the Quartus Lite to see whether the issue persists.

 

If your project files located at drive C, you will need to open the Quartus software with administration every time you open project. 

I advise to move your project folder to somewhere else as mentioned by sstrell.
