Why do I see an error when running the Design Assistant on the HDMI design in Intel® Quartus® Prime standard software?

Description

When running Design Assistant on the HDMI design in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard software, you will encounter an error with the following message: 

Info: Reading SDC File: 'hdmi_tx/hdmi_tx/synthesis/submodules/bitec_hdmi.sdc'

Error: ERROR: Quartus Prime Tcl package "::quartus::design" is only available for use in the following executables

This is due to get_entity_instances being used within the HDMI sdc file. This command is not supported in the Intel Quartus Prime Standard version of the Design Assistant. The command is supported in the Intel Quartus Prime Standard Fitter and Timequest.

Workaround/Fix

To work around this problem Intel Quartus Prime Pro can be used.

This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future release of the Intel Quartus Prime Standard software.
