Eclipse: Downloading ELF process failed?

This is for MAX10 (10M08), nios2, Quartus Lite v20.1.1 (Free version).

I have Quartus Lite 21.1 and eclipse but I had to install Quartus Lite 20.1 because I needed the sdram ip core which is not available in v21.1. Eclipse doesn't lunch from within Quartus 20.1, I dunno why. So I manually run it. I created a new workspace folder. I made a project with the sdram ip, nios, etc (Link to the project zip file). I can program the max10 configuration fine. I set a couple of leds on to show me that it is correct. It is. Now I'm trying to program the software from within eclipse but I keep getting the error in the picture below... the second picture is the console output. Can someone shed some light into my problem?

I messed up the link after I removed some code to see if that would make the error go away. It didn't work. The numbers in the console change a bit but I still get the same error. Here is the link to the zip file:

Hi,

 

Please you can refer below for workaround:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/programmable/articles/000078544.html

 

Also, you can check on this manual for example design instead:

Is the Nios ii processor Reset vector memory properly set? I noticed you configure it to sdram.s1.

Can check on reset and nreset ports as well, may be some connections missing there.
