4.8.1. Installing and Configuring jtagserver on Windows
If you choose not to install the JTAG Server as a Windows service automatically, then when necessary, you can install the JTAG Server manually using the command line option, jtagserver.exe --install as an Administrator. The jtagserver.exe is available within your Intel® Quartus® Prime software installation directory (<path>/quartus/bin64). The installed service does not run as an Administrator.
- After the installation, you can either use the Task Manager > Services tab or the command-line option --status to verify if the jtagserver service is running.
- You can control the jtagserver service using the --start and --stop command-line options or using the Task Manager.
If there is no active JTAG Server process running, client applications such as Programmer automatically launches an instance of the non-persistent JTAG Server (without it running as a service) and exists after two minutes of idleness.
