Upgrading Project from Old to New Cyclone V Board

I'm trying to configure the 5CSEBA6U23I7NDK Cyclone V SoC (DE-10 Nano) with a project that was originally developed for the 5CSEMA4U23C6 Cyclone V Soc (DE0-Nano). The project manages to compile, but it always fails to configure in Programmer. I know that I need to change the project's targeted board. How do I do this? Attempting to do this through the device settings in Quartus doesn't work because my new board model simply doesn't show up in the list. Can I obtain the development kit for this board somewhere? What are my other options? Thanks.

Normally when updating a project to a new device type one would go into the 'Device Manager' and change the device type from the old one listed (ie, 5CSEMA4U23C6) to the new one you want (ie, 5CSEBA6U23I7).  Does doing this not work for you?

 

Quartus compiles for DEVICES, not BOARDS. Select the correct device for the board you have.

I went back and tried that again. The project's device changed, although I was initially unable to compile it as Quartus was throwing "illegal node assignment" errors. However, and I honestly have no idea what I did, I tried it again later and it compiled. The new board is now programmed.

And, of course, you will probably also have to go into the Pin Planner to adjust the I/O assignments for the new board.
