Hi,


The driver is part of the Quartus installation. For example, it will be in "C:\intelFPGA_pro\20.2\quartus\drivers" if you install the full quartus 20.2 installation.


You may refer to https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/download/drivers/dri-... for all the driver.

Did you install the driver for your OS (USB-Blaster)?

Hi,


How do you connect your PC to the DE1 board? Have you power up the board?

Hi,


Could you try the step below which is to disable the Driver Signature to install the driver?


1 - Go to windows 10 settings and search for "advanced startup options" 

2 - Under Advanced startup, hit "Restart now" 

3 - After a moment, you'll get a "choose an option" screen - choose "Troubleshoot", then "Advanced options", then "Startup Settings" 

4 - You'll get a screen telling you what you will be able to change and a single "Restart" button - press it. 

5 - If your boot drive is BitLocker encrypted, you'll need to enter the recovery key (press return, enter the key in the text box then hit return again - it took me three goes to realize I had to hit return before I could enter they key !) 

6 - You'll be given a menu of options, number 7 disables driver signature enforcement 

7 - When the PC restarts, use Device manager to update the drivers - this time you'll get a warning about the signature, but they install fine. 

8 - When you've finished, restart normally to re-enable signature enforcement

I tried this and it didn't change anything, I can't find the USB blaster II driver on the intel site how can i download it or where can i download it. I believe i don't have the driver installed that's the problem. Could you please send me your phone number to call so i can get this whole thing figured out at once. I really need this resolved, I am falling behind in my class because of this issue
