I don't know how to solve this problem, can u help me? 

 

BTW: some info maybe u need 

<-------------------------------------------------------> 

1. PC OS: XP 

2. Quartus II 11.0 + Nios II IDE 11.0 

3. Build software and generate SOPC Builder System 

4. Use hardware accelerator in place of software implementation. Flush data cahe....

# include <stdio.h> int sum_elements(int *list, int len) { /*the function which i want to convert from ANSI C to HDL*/ int i; int sum = 0; for(i = 0; i < len; i++) sum += *list++; return sum; } int main() { int ia = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}; int sum = sum_elements(ia, 5); printf("%d", sum); }

I'm suspecting a file/directory permission problem. The error is saying that it cannot write the system .ptf file to your file system (i.e. it dropped the accelerator into your design but can't save your system before generating it). 

 

It might also be the hyphon (-) in your directory path causing problems. Try turning that into an underscore (_) instead and see if that fixes the problem.

Meanwhile, i noticed that there is a similar error in  

"Nios II Embedded Design Suite Release Notes and Errata" like this:

Try accelerating a really simple function, sometimes the error codes out of C2H are not very helpful. The simpliest function you can accelerate would be something like: 

 

int foo()  

{  

return 1; 

}
