Error: onchip_mem: wrong# args: should be "sub_quartus_synth NAME" 

while executing 

"sub_quartus_synth nios ii_onchip_mem" 



Error: Generation stopped, 4 or more modules remaining

Although i got the problem fixed, by first making the project in Quartus and then making its Qsys file, but tutotrial said to start with q sys and then make the project in quartus! thanks
