Intel ARM DS 2020.0 with SoCEDS on Windows 10, debugger issue


I have issue with "Arm DS 2020.0 Intel Edition Toolkit" , i am running my ARM
DS2020 debugger on windowd 10 (64 bit machine)

Earlier i am using ARM DS-5 along with Quartus16.1 and i am running

( see the web link) application without any issue on Cyclone V SoC Kit,
I have connect AD9361 board to by SoC Kit through HSMC


i have download from GitHub:

now recently i have purchase Arm DS Intel Edition Toolkit (2020), and
also quartus 20.1 but nothing is working here, some how i am able to
compile RTL Project on quartus, but every time i run my ARRADIO Software
on ARM DS2020 it generate below error.I have compile the project on
Quartus16.1 & Quartus 18.1 also but no gain.

Error is :

Hi ,

Please let us know whether you are trying to use the PRO version of Standard version of Quartus , Also please share the error logs which are obtained while using Quartus 20.1 and DS2020.

Also if possible enable the internal error log and provide us the details .

Thanks and Regards
