USB Blaster cannot be selected

If I execute the following sequence in Quartus Prime

  1. Quartus Prime window -> Tools -> Programmer
  2. The Programmer dialogue appears
  3. On the left, underneath the menu bar, click Hardware Setup
  4. In the Hardware Setup dialogue that appears, to the left of Currently Selected Hardware, select USB Blaster

The USB blaster is not there. What needs to be done to be able to select it?

To my embarrassment, I accidentally found out that the driver is installed when the PC is rebooted with the development board switched on and connected to a USB port.

Anyway, perhaps someone may find this simple solution useful.

Hi,


Please try to uninstall and reinstalled the USB blaster driver. Make sure the driver is correctly installed.


Regards,

Aiman

 Thanks for your reply. The driver has been correctly installed. Hence, that is not the solution I am afraid.

Apologies, I was too hasty in my reply. In 'Control Panel' -> 'Printers and Devices' -> 'Bluetooth and Devices', under 'USB Blaster', it is mentioned that the 'Driver is unavailable'
Does anyone know where to download the driver?
