how to dump a .exe on a NIOS II processer

i have created a QSYS System which has a NIOS II processor standard and has a C code(DDR_test.c) which transfers data to the DDR3 UniPhy controller. !! 

 

Is there any way to directly put an .exe to the processor while not changing the .sof (which has the DDR3 controller). ??

It is extremely unlikely that your executable code is embedded in the fpga image. 

It is almost certainly downloaded afterwards. 

I suspect you are loading it over the JTAG debug port.

Thanks @dsl figured this out. 

 

Have one more question, I can see that the limit on the ON CHIP MEMORY RAM is 64KB. So is there any way to know what is the amount of memory usage my code (ex : DDR_TEST.c) is taking. ???
