IP Product: RLDRAM II Memory Controller

Error: Error during execution of "{C:/altera/12.1/quartus//../nios2eds/Nios II Command Shell.bat} make all 2>> stderr.txt": child process exited abnormally


You may experience the above error when generating a UniPHY-based memory controller. The error occurs because one of the system environment variables 'TEMP' points to a network drive and not a local drive.


The workaround is to point the TEMP variable to the local machine, such as the C: drive. Also the variable HOMEDRIVE should point to the local machine.
