Error running /dsp_builder/setupMatlabClassPath.bat install "" "dsp_builder": child killed: segmentation violation


Due to a problem in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, you will see this error message whenever you attempt to install DSP Builder on a Windows* platform.



You can safely ignore this message, or you can run the installation manually from the command line instead of using the GUI shortcut.  

For example:

  • Open a command prompt in Windows
  • Execute "c:\intelFPGA\17.1\quartus\dsp_builder\setupMatlabClassPath.bat install "c:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2015b" "c:\intelFPGA\17.1\quartus\dsp_builder"

(replace the paths with your own paths)

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