qpro.exe is missing in the new version of Quartus Pro 22.4

Hi,

In the latest version of Quartus Pro 22.4, I observed that the qpro.exe is missing in the installed directory path E:\intelFPGA_pro\22.4\quartus\bin64.

The older version 22.3 has this qpro.exe in the installed path. I observed this change in new version of Quartus pro 22.4

What is the executable to launch Quartus pro in this latest version 22.4 ?

Thanks 

Venu

Is quartus.exe there?  I haven't installed 22.4 yet.  They are the same.  I've always wondered why both are there.

Hi,


Below is the previous internal message:

qpro.exe is built in the qgq/qgq_exe.gmake file. It is simply a copy from quartus.exe. We should stop building this executable, and therefore stop shipping it. It is not needed, and is confusing and redundant with quartus.exe. This was a Premal-requested feature as I recall, when we made the Standard Edition/Pro Edition split years ago. As far I know, the qpro.exe was never really marketed. Even our documentation says to use quartus.exe: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683472/22-4/starting-the-software.html

Therefore, these two executables had been removed from the installation starting with version 22.4.


Best Regards,

Sheng
