After you have generated the Nios system with sopc builder, you should find the <sopc_name>.ptf file in your project directory and the install.ptf file in a .sopc_bulder subdirectory. This applies to Quartus 9.0, but it is probably the same with 10. 

Then, when you create a new Nios IDE project, you have to enter the previous file int the target hardware box. 

Have you performed these exact steps?

Yes, I got the .ptf file but I cannot find the install.ptf file. When I choose the file in the target hardware box, it automatically picks up the cpu for NIOS using that particular file, so I know thats right. What else could be the problem for the install.ptf to be missing?  

Also, as a side note, I created the NIOS II system and it also generates successfully.  

 

This is the report at the end of generation: 

 

# 2010.11.24 23:03:05 (*) completed generation for system: demo2.# 2010.11.24 23:03:05 (*) the following system items have been generated:

info: system generation was successful.
