3.9.2. Design Library Migration Guidelines

The following guidelines apply to library migration across computing platforms:
  1. The project directory takes precedence over the project libraries.
  2. For Linux, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software creates the file in the altera.quartus directory under the <home> directory.
  3. All library files are relative to the libraries. For example, if you specify the user_lib1 directory as a project library and you want to add the /user_lib1/foo1.v file to the library, you can specify the foo1.v file in the .qsf as foo1.v. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software includes files in specified libraries.
  4. If the directory is outside of the project directory, an absolute path is created by default. Change the absolute path to a relative path before migration.
  5. When copying projects that include libraries, you must either copy your project library files along with the project directory or ensure that your project library files exist in the target platform.
    • On Windows*, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software searches for the quartus2.ini file in the following directories and order:
    • USERPROFILE, for example, C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>
    • Directory specified by the TMP environmental variable
    • Directory specified by the TEMP environmental variable
    • Root directory, for example, C:\
