Hardware Dev Tutorial Files

Hello all, 

 

I have just started trying to get the Hardware Development Tutorial up and running but the project files in the companion zip file will not open. I get the following error: 

 

"The project or revision name contains one or more of the following illegal characters and 

cannot be opened: ^&*|<>;'" 

 

As far as i can see the project file is named correctly: 

 

"nios2_quartus2_project.qpf" 

 

any ideas folks? 

 

many thanks 

D

Ok, I have solved the problem: and it was my bad. 

 

I had the project files in a folder that had an illegal character. Strange that, as Quartus must see the path as being integral to the filename.  

 

thanks for looking
