Error in creating Nios Project and BSP from Templates: Makefile(Access is denied)

AHadi

I have Quartus and Nios 16.1 Lite edition installed and working fine. However, there is a small bug in 16.1 that is apparently resolved in newer versions. I tried upgrading to 18.1 but when I want to create a new project with BSP from the hello_world_small template or any other templates, I get the error screens below on accessing the Makfile and the project build fails. I run the Nios software with administrator rights and have no idea what the source of the probelm is. I appreciate any advise on Fixes/Workarounds. If it matters, my operating system is a windows 10.

 

Thanks

Hi Amir,

 

Try to Regenerate the BSP to update the Makefile and then build again. To regenerate from Eclipse Right-click the BSP project.>Nios II Menu->click Generate BSP. 

 

If possible share the project.

Hi Anand,

 

I tried your suggestion but it did not resolve the problem. I am attaching the sopcinfo and qsys files here.

It is a very simple project comprising of a timer and two pios.

 

Thanks,

​Hi,

 

I was able to created new project for 10M08SAE144C8GES device with your nios.qsys and Quartus lite 18.1 successfully.

  1. delete your db , incremental_db & software folders and generate your Qsys system and create new eclipse project and check

 

attached project
