Build errors in IDE since 4.2 upgrade

Folks, 

Anyone upgraded to qts 4.2 yet? I just did and now I cant build. I get this strange error: 

 

[C:/Projects/fpga/antennaHead/QuartusHead/AntennaHeadCPU_sim/dummy_file] Error 2 

 

There is no dummy_file at that location. I tried rebuild all, regen in SOPC builder, etc. There have been no changes to the code. Any ideas?

Are you using also using NIOS II v1.1> I thought you have to.

We need to upgrade to v1.1. 

 

Otherwise you should not use Quartus 4.2!

Re: Build errors in IDE since 4.2 upgrade

That's correct. This error message will occur when using Quartus II v4.2 and Nios 1.0 sp1. You can either downgrade Quartus or upgrade Nios (I highly recommend upgrading to Nios 1.1).
