Eclipse - Error Creating Project (Access is Denied)

I am trying to create a simple template hello world nios application for a 19.1 Quartus pro project. First, the SBT shortcuts were installed by default, but not the underlying files for eclipse. So, none of the shortcuts work after installation. I followed the instructions I found online to install Eclipse for 19.1 (why is it missing in this latest Quartus version...??). and now I can run the SBT, but when I try to create a hello world project and bsp - it fails. It seems to make the bsp project fine, but then fails on the hello world app saying "Error Creating Project c:\mypath\Makefile (Access is denied). 

I checked that I have full ownership of the working directory, and I am the admin on the Win 10 machine. I saw 2 other posts with the same exact thing - but no resolution. I did notice if I go to a nios 2 command shell and look at file permissions, it appears all files and directories Eclipse itself is creating, doesn't have rwx for the file owner or the all users (---rwx---) - when I force them with chmod -R a+rwx - still no luck. I am running the SBT (eclipse-nios2.exe) as administrator as well. As another data point, using the SBT for 18.1 works fine creating template projects with the same .sopcinfo file.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

Some how the 19.1 and 19.2 version left the admin permission for some files. you can grab control by (Right click the folder>>Properties>>Security Tab>>Select users(exJohn)>>Press Edit>> Check the "Full control" box>> OK) .

Hi,

 

we had the same problem using Quartus Prime Standard 18.1 Build 646. After downgrading to 18.1 Build 625 this issue disappeared.
