problem to download ELF file to DE-1 board

I'm trying to download an elf file to the DE-1 board as described in the book:  

"EMBEDDED SOPC DESIGN WITH NIOS II PROCESSOR AND VHDL EXAMPLES" from Pong P. Chu,  

page 203:  

"Load the .elf file to the designated memory modules, 

Select the application directory, ledl.test, in the Navigator subwindow. Right-click the mouse and select Run As >- Nios II Hardware" 

 

I have build that example project, but at right clicking on the project I get only the choice: Run-As -> Local C/C++ Application, 

the sof file I already downloaded before 

 

I'm using the Eclipse EDS version: 

91sp2_nios2eds_windows 

 

Thx, 

Adriano
