Hi! 

 

I'm having a problem with creating a project in Nioss II eclipse. When I go to file/new--> Nios II application and BSP template, I have to find the SOPC information file. I have no problem locating this file but when i press finish I get this error-message: Failed to execute: ./create-this-bsp --cpu-name cpu --no-make. 

 

I'm using windows 8.1 (unfortunately) och I've tried to run Nios as an administrator.  

 

I'll upload two screenshots and hopefully somebody could help me with this.

Avoid non-English (ä, å...) characters (and spaces) in the path :-)

Thank you, it works better now:) But I still have a problem. Whenever I try to run the program as "Nios II hardware" I get an error message that says "downloading elf process failed nios ii". Do you know why?

You need a board to "run as hardware" : an Altera Dev kit board or your custom board. 

You need to match your software with your hardware. More precisely, you need to match your BSP (software) with your QSYS/SOPC which should be in your FPGA on your board. 

 

A fail download is often caused by a watchdog, a reset, Mismatching Qsys/SOPC (see "sysid").
