Workaround/Fix

The PowerPlay Power Analyzer is not supported for the MAX® 10 device in the Quartus II software release version 14.0 update 2. You must remove the FLOW_ENABLE_POWER_ANALYZER setting from your project Quartus II Settings File (.qsf) file, or set the FLOW_ENABLE_POWER_ANALYZER value to OFF.
