print hello world without a board

If I don't have a FGPA board, can I still print a "hello world" message to the Nios IDE console? I tried to run the program as a local C/C++ application, but the console just has a message say <terminated>hello.exe/.... 

 

What should I do? 

 

Thank you!

Perhaps with ISS (Instruction Set simulator). Not sure at all. I never use that. 

It is easier with a board.

In older versions of the tools there was an ISS, but that has long since been discontinued. Lauterbach sells a fully functional ISS and other Nios II related debug stuff on their website. 

 

Good luck!

You could create a design and simulate it. The UART communication will be piped out to the Modelsim transcript window.
