T-Guard Driver for Windows

The driver for the T-guard is installed and started automatically on Windows.

If you have not installed the T-guard on LPT1 (the first parallel port), you must configure the Sentinel driver so the T-guard can be recognized.

Note: Some cable drivers are not available for download on this page. They are available after you install the Intel® Quartus® Prime software in the <Quartus Prime Installation Directory>\drivers directory.
