Hi, Nios II SBT version > 10 uses the "Board Support Package (BSP)" instead of "system library (SYSLIB)" 

uses qsys instead of SOPC. 

I think with version >= 12, the "syslib" support has been dropped. 


So create the QSYS : You can convert old SOPC to QSYS quite easily. But I prefer rewrite from scratch the Qsys component. 


[B]For software, you had to create the BSP{/B] : In NIOS II SBT, file menu > new...> create NIOS II application & Board support Package
