Hi,

 

You can open Windows, and search for Nios II Software Build Tools for Eclipse.

The Nios II embedded design suite is messed up. There is no easy was to get going from 18 to 20 as it was with 17 to 18

1 18.1 Nios Eclipse projects do not import into 20.1 You have to recreate the project.

2. Installation of Eclipse for EDS itself is a challenging task. You have to copy paste the plugin from Intel, then enable WSL from Micorsoft , then install Ubuntu from Windows Stores and then some ubuntu tools like "make" via "apt" from Ubuntu.

See how messed up it is.

All of these are documented some where in bits and pieces, but no clear wiki encompassing the whole picture.

 

I got Nios 2 EDS 20.1  running in windows but I find no advantage compared to 18.1 Maybe this is a water shed period and some grand changes for the better is on the anvil.
