Issue executing sample applications(HPS) provided in the Cyclone V SOC kit related

Honored Contributor II


I have been trying to download the examples provided in the Embedded design suite into the HPS compoment of the Cyclone V Soc. Currently i have ARM DS-5 eclipse through which i am trying to execute the hello world example but there is an error i am encountering in the 'debugging perspective'. The error is as following 


"Stopping running target Altera - Cyclone V SoC on TCP:localhost on connectionConnected to running target Altera - Cyclone V SoC on TCP:localhost

source /v "C:\Program Files (x86)\DS-5\sw\debugger\configdb\Boards\Altera\Cyclone V SoC\..\..\..\Scripts\" 



No SYSID registers could be found. Has a peripheral description file been supplied?
