Follow these steps:

  1. Visit the FPGA Software Download Center page.
  2. Using the left-hand filter pane, perform the following steps to refine the search results:
    1. Select the Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Software option. This displays three Intel® Quartus® Prime software editions (Pro, Standard, or Lite).
    2. Select Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software. This displays a list of supported software versions.
    3. Select 23.3 or later software version.
  3. In the refined list of pages, click the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition download page. The product download page appears.
  4. Click the Installer tab.
  5. Click the Download button.
    • For GUI mode, use the .run (on Linux) or .exe (on Windows) file. It automatically extracts the files to your TEMP directory and launches the installer.

      If you run the installer on a Linux system without a display, the installer errors out with an appropriate error message. In this case, use the CLI mode.

    • For CLI mode, perform these steps:
      1. Run the .run file with the --target <path> option on Linux or .exe file with the -d<path> option on Windows to extract the files to the <path> location.
        Note: On Windows, do not add any space between -d and <path> in the command-line option.
      2. Close the auto-launched GUI.
      3. Run the qinst.sh --cli command on Linux or qinst_cli.bat --cli command on Windows. If you need help, run the command with --help to view the help manual. For more information about CLI commands, refer to Using CLI Commands.
