10.1 Flash Programmer Error code: 4

I have a new design containing two Cyclone III (3C40's), each with a 256Mbit Numonyx P33 flash (65nm version) that fail (they both fail the same way) with the Nios II flash programmer. It seems the programmer reads the CFI query table info correctly but gives Error code: 4 (see below). I have tried manually to read/write/erase the device and it seems to work perfectly fine - but the GUI failure persists. I did notice that the blocks appear locked (not in lock-down mode, but just block-lock), which I know in the past the programmer takes care of doing the unlocking, etc... in any case I did try to unlock them manually and retry - no luck. 

 

I've seen a couple other posts on this (specifically one with Error code: 4) with no resolution - does anyone know what could be wrong and potential work-arounds? 

 

thank you

Did you ever get an answer to what Error Code 4 is? I am getting the same error code from the nios flash programmer but so far have not found any information on it.
