Why is Altera® USB Blaster not detected by Quartus® Programmer when it is recognized correctly in Device Manager?

HI

 

I am not able to program my Cyclon V EVM as the Quartus prime (Quartus prime version 19.1.0 build 670 09/22/2019 SJ Lite Edition) because USB blaster II is not being detected by Quartus programmer.

 

This seems like a road block as I am not able to flash .sof file for testing.

 

Ideally hardware setup should be "USB-Blaster [USB-1]" but it is showing "CV SoCKit [USB-1]"

Device manager is recognizing the device properly.

Then I found a link from Intel FAQ link (added below) requesting me to disable"Altera JTAG server" from the services. I did that as well but still no luck.

FYI: I am using Windows 10 64 bit OS.

the EVM Kit is from teraASIL Cuclone V SOC kit.

It seems like I am in a road block as I want to test some thing ASAP. Could some one help me to overcome this hurdle?

Hello,

Good day

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. Could you help try on this just reboot Altera JTAG server (not disable it)

•           Goto Window task manager -> process -> look for jtagserver.exe and kill it

•           After that, the default JTAG clock frequency is 24M. Could you try reducing the JTAG clock speed to 16M or 6M to see how things go.
