Can you try the following workaround? Seems like we have issue on v13.1 and earlier

Hi YuanLi_S_Intel

     Thank you, YuanLi_S_Intel, very much.

 

The generated pof file name is different every time.

How to configure the cof file's pof file name by using "quartus_cpf -c <cof file>" command?

As noted in the earlier post, on Quartus 13.0sp1 I use a configuration file .cof and run quartus_cpf -c design.cof and that works just fine.

You just have to put all the parameters in the .cof file and not on the command line.

Contents of my design.cof file:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="US-ASCII" standalone="yes"?>
<cof>
	<eprom_name>EPCS4</eprom_name>
	<flash_loader_device>EP2C20</flash_loader_device>
	<output_filename>design.jic</output_filename>
	<n_pages>1</n_pages>
	<width>1</width>
	<mode>7</mode>
	<sof_data>
		<user_name>Page_0</user_name>
		<page_flags>1</page_flags>
		<bit0>
			<sof_filename>design.sof</sof_filename>
		</bit0>
	</sof_data>
	<version>4</version>
	<options>
		<map_file>1</map_file>
	</options>
</cof>

Hi ak6dn

     Thank you, ak6dn, very much.

 

I will try to use Convert Programming Files GUI to generate the cof file.

Do you mean that?

If I recall correctly, I think I used that tool the first time to build it in a GUI.

Now I just modify/build it using a text editor copy/paste/edit.

The .cof file is a simple XML format text file, so a text editor works just fine.

Hi ak6dn

     Thank you, ak6dn, very much.

 

Because the generated pof file name  and sof file are different every time, could I use the variable in the cof file?
