2.7.1. Exporting a Version-Compatible Compilation Database

To export a project compilation database to a format that ensures version-compatibility with a later version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software:
  1. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, open the project that you want to export.
  2. Generate synthesis or final compilation results by running one of the following commands:
    • Click Processing > Start > Start Analysis & Synthesis to generate synthesized compilation results.
    • Click Processing > Start Compilation to generate final compilation results.
  3. Click Project > Export Database, specify the Export directory name, and click OK. The database files export to the location you specify. You can now import this exported database into a later version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
Note: You can turn on Assignments > Settings > Compilation Process Settings > Export version-compatible database if you want to always export a version-compatible database following compilation.
