nios2-elf-gcc.exe: error: CreateProcess: No such file or directory

Jump to solution

Hi,

Windows 10 Pro

2004

19041.450

Quartus Prime Pro 19.4, build 64

All Intel and Nios SW is on a local drive.

I get this error in the NiosII shell:

"nios2-elf-gcc.exe: error: CreateProcess: No such file or directory"

Do you have any hints or path available?

Regards.

As a solution to the issue nios2-elf-gcc.exe: fatal error: cannot execute 'cc1': CreateProcess: No such file or directory we have found useful what follows.

Before running make.exe on the generated Makefile, add this to your bash script:

export WSLENV=PATH/l:${WSLENV}
sed -i 's/\(adjust-path[-mixed]*\) = .*/\1 = $1/' Makefile

WSLEN fixes missing pathnames, while sed basically removes the effect of adjust-path.

This is an issue introduced by a Windows update but I still believe Intel should provide a fix or patch for it. We wasted several days on it.

I installed now 20.2 and it gives the same error but a bit more info:

Easy way to replicate:

1.- create an empty C source file (e.g. a.c)

2.- execute gcc from the nios shell

nios2-elf-gcc.exe -c a.c

and you'll get the error.

Another bit of info. We had a second PC where our original script was working (i.e. nios2-elf-gcc.exe was not failing). Today we updated this PC to Windows 19041.450 and after that we get the same error message also on this second PC!

Hi Marco!

Thanks for reaching us,

Please follow the next steps:


  1. Install WSL
  2. Open the terminal
  3. run $ nios2_command_shell.sh
  4. run the tests you need to make , at this point it should work properly.


As resume, you need to have WSL correctly installed.

Please try those steps and let me know the results.


Best regards,

-Eliath Guzman

Hi Eliath,

I tried what you suggest and I got the same error.

We have had WSL correctly installed from the very beginning. Please read my messages above. The issue started after the latest Windows 10 updates.

Hello Intel support team,

Is there any solution for this error?

Me too getting the same error after updating the Windows. I tried to reinstall everything. But, getting same error. Please let me know the solution since it is very urgent.

I have the same or similar problem.

My wsl (v2) is up to date as is my Win10 version (2004).  It appears the problem is paths.

The $PATH in nios command shell contains

/mnt/e/intelFPGA/20.1/nios2eds/bin/gnu/H-i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin

That path doesn't exist in my installation: however this one does

/mnt/e/intelFPGA/20.1/nios2eds/bin/gnu/H-x86_64-mingw32/bin

Neither of those paths (or their windows equivalents) is in my windows path environment or subsequently in my wsl $PATH.

Should the 20.1 quartus full install have added a path for nios2eds, and if so which?

Hi

I have exactly the same error. Is there any resolution to this?

As a temporary solution, I just found that it is working with normal windows command prompt instead of WSL. So, I just opened windows command prompt with "cmd" command. Then, set the path (that may vary on your system) as below.

set PATH=C:\intelFPGA_pro\20.1\nios2eds\bin\gnu\H-x86_64-mingw32\bin;%PATH%

And, built my library using "nios2-elf-gcc.exe" commands. Only thing, unix-style shell commands won't work. I just replaced "rm -f" with "del" in my makefile.

----

Hope Intel will provide the proper solution to this very soon!!

@Eliath_G_Intel,

My workaround is a combination of things.

I manually added a couple of sdk paths to my windows environment Path.  (E:\intelFPGA\20.1\nios2eds\bin;E:\intelFPGA\20.1\nios2eds\bin\gnu\H-x86_64-mingw32\bin)

I rebooted wsl (by restarting LxssManager service) to get the updated $PATH.

I edited the Makefile to change "Microsoft" to "microsoft"

Additional details to workarounds/corrections

There are problems trying to create a new app or create a new format Makefile for an older app.

I had to manually create a wsl env for SOPC_KIT_NIOS2.  In wsl:

export SOPC_KIT_NIOS2=/mnt/e/intelFPGA/20.1/nios2eds

Then for any create-this-app change "Microsoft" to "microsoft"

Then  edit the resulting created Makefile to change "Microsoft" to "microsoft"

and change

APP_LDFLAGS += -msys-lib=$(call adjust-path-mixed,$(SYS_LIB)) 

to 

APP_LDFLAGS += -msys-lib=hal_bsp

 

additional:

change Makefile to

BUILD_PRE_PROCESS := touch $(ELF).srec

(per this post )

modify nios2-download and nios2-configure-sof scripts to use lower-case 'm'
