I have a number of problems even with the simple Hello World examples (no output from run, debugger does not launch, connection to fpga upload fails) Screen-shots at :
These are possibly according to
related to the fact I am working on a Windows 7 (64 bit) system.
I believe a fix for the above is given in the following forum item :
As I say, I am very new to IDEs and to Eclipse in particular - can anyone tell me what I do with the files I unpack from the org.eclipse.cdt.repo.zip file that this points to, or suggest some other fix ?
1) I have tried removing earlier versions and re-installing on C:
2) adding D:\altera\11.1sp2\quartus\bin\cygwin\bin to PATH
I have tried the following suggested fixes to get output on the Console :
3) compile C not C++ ;
4) This is a well known problem with the console output of Eclipse on Windows. There are two possible workarounds:
- add fflush() after every printf/scanf
(actually fflush(stdout); )
- add the following command in your main routine
setvbuf(stdout, NULL, _IONBF, 0);
setvbuf(stderr, NULL, _IONBF, 0);
This will disable the console buffering.
5) also added \n to printf statements.
none of this has helped.
The Altera download installs and configures :
Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers
Version: Helios Service Release 2
Build id: 20110301-1815
Any suggestions how I can install a more recent (64bit compatible) version without losing all the Altera configuration info ?
