Hi all,

A urgent help required

I have those two installed in my pc which has a Windows Vista enterprise OS.

Now when i try to execute the nios shell, the following error occurs in the dos window and it doesnt take me to that [SOPC builder]$prompt C:\altera\quartus42\bin\cygwin\bin\bash.exe: *** heap allocated but not at 0x180 0000 16 [main] bash 5132 sync_with_child: child 3672(0xE4) died before initializ ation with status code 0x1 142 [main] bash 5132 sync_with_child: *** child state waiting for longjmp bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable bash-2.05b$

Any any clues?????

Thanks and regards
cameo

Hi,

You use a very old Quartus version. I do not believe that version is supported on Windows Vista.

qu(at)rtus Ver 4.2 & Nios 3.2 shell - Compiling error !!

I too guessed whether that could be a problem, thats why i mentioned about the OS

yes, i am using an old version because my nios hardware is an old one. so the only option is to switch to windows xp. is'nt it?
any thing apart from that. ?
