Quartus Prime Pro 16.1 - EDA Tool Options not showing up in Tools -> Options...

Hi, 

 

Extremely simple problem I am having. I'm trying to set ModelSim up - I know that I have to specify the path for the .exe, but cannot find where I am supposed to specify the path. I've checked everywhere online, but people seem to be able to find the menu.  

 

I've attached screenshots of the menus I thought I would have found this option in. I expect to find EDA Tool Options in Tools -> Options (under the general category, but it isn't there...). I also checked Assignments -> Settings -> EDA Tool Settings, but there is no 'specify path' options there.  

 

What am I missing here?  

 

Thanks for your time with what is surely a trivial issue.

Hi, 

 

Quartus Pro does not support the Native Links options.  

Manually open the model-sim. 

For simulate the IP's specify your supported simulator and options for IP simulation file generation,click Assignment ➤ Settings ➤ EDA Tool Settings ➤ Simulation. 

setup the simulation environment by scripts.

How are customers supposed to simulate all the pertebations of Altera IP and sub macros, etc without the scripting help of Nativlink? What am I missing? How are you supposed to get a good .vcd file for power estimation? 

 

Pro is supposed to be the flagship software package, is it not? How are they deprecating basic longstanding features out of their flagship software?
