Win10 crashes with USB Blaster - any patch available?

Honored Contributor I

Tried it with Quartus 17 and 18. When opening the tools -> programmer it doesn't recognize the USB blaster, after 'Hardware Setup" it hangs up for a minute it recognize it but when connecting to proven board the windows crashes. 


Same behavior on differn computers (both with Win10) and with different USB Blasters.... 


I remember that long time ago there was similar issue, then the solution was by re-installing an older version driver. 

Is there any solution now? 

Any usable link to different driver? 

Meantime i'm stuck....
