Quartus II 13.1 Programmer Hardware Setup

Honored Contributor II

Hello, I have a DE1-SoC board connected to my computer. But, when I click to Hardware Setup there is no any hardware. How could I solve this? This is my first time to use this.

Hi, I assume you are talking about the Hardware Setup inside the Quartus Programmer. What the hardware setup does is to detect the USB Blaster device connected to the board. As such, you need to ensure that the drivers for USB Blaster II (since DE1-SoC uses on board USB Blaster II) is installed. The driver are usually found in C:\altera\<quartus version>\quartus\drivers
