Hello everyone,

I am a new user of Quartus, and I have had the experience of using Quartus to make some simple projects in the past few weeks. Recently I updated my computer to windows 11 and reinstalled and upgraded Quartus to version 22.1std, but after this I found that the files that used to run successfully now have the same problem, the problem is as follows :

 

When I want to create a waveform file with a .v file (used with Quartus Prime 22.1std). The following error code appears after using Simulation Waveform Editor.

 

Determining the location of the ModelSim executable...

Using: c:/intelfpga_lite/22.1std/questa_fe/win64/

To specify a ModelSim executable directory, select: Tools -> Options -> EDA Tool Options
Note: if both Questa Intel FPGA Edition and ModelSim executables are available, Questa Intel FPGA Edition will be used.

Error.

Through this error code, I can't point out what specific problems occurred, but here is what I tried to do.

1. romove -novopt in "simulation options" in the Simulation Waveform Editor 

2. "simulation options" in the Simulation Waveform Editor and change  vsim -novopt to vsim -voptargs="+acc". 

3. make sure I have a specific EDA tool in my settings(All the tools have been tried but have the same error code,so I guess it's not the tool's problem)

Am I missing something?

Thank you all very much in advance!

Hi,


Windows 11 is not a supported OS for Quartus 22.1std.

Windows 11 is only supported in Quartus 22.3Pro onwards, which is why you see this issue.


Please use Windows 10 for Quartus 22.1std. Let me know if you see any issues with this.


Regards,

Nurina

Hi,


Late reply for a few days, originally did not consider let the OS back to win10,

so spent a little time on version 22.3, but I didn't expect more problems in this situation haha,

finally decided to return to win10 after using version 22.1 and it works!

thank you so much for your advice!
