Hi,


It might be due to the problem with the Quartus. Can you try the workaround in the KDB below?

Hi  Aiman , Ak6dn 

Thanks a lot for your help.

Intel USB Blaster is working on windows 10 version 21H2  with  Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition Software version 21.1 drivers.

Older software version also working with 21.1 drivers , just replaced the old driver folder with 21.1 driver and it is started working fine.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Ramesh S.
