Is the Nios® II Software Build Tools (SBT) for Eclipse included in the full installation of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 19.1?

Description

No, the Nios® II SBT for Eclipse is not included in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 19.1.

Workaround/Fix

To install the Nios® II SBT for Eclipse, follow the steps below:

1. Download CDT 8.8.1 which is Eclipse C/C++ IDE for Mars.2

2. Extract the downloaded file into <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin.  You should see the <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/eclipse folder after extraction is done.

3. Rename the <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/eclipse folder to <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/eclipse_nios2

4. Extract the <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/eclipse_nios2_plugins.zip (or tar.gz for Linux) to <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin. The extraction will override files in <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/eclipse_nios2. 

5. Verify the extraction is done correctly by making sure you see the <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/eclipse_nios2/plugin_customization.ini file

6. You can now launch Nios II SBT for Eclipse via eclipse-nios2.exe

 

The instructions are included in the <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/README.
