In a future version of the Quartus II software, a stand-alone Jam STAPL Player executable will be installed that can run on DOS and supports all Quartus II supported download cables including the USBblaster download cable.

The stand-alone DOS based Jam Standard Test and Programming Language (STAPL) player is not compatible with Byteblaster II download cables. The driver in the stand-alone DOS Jam STAPL player is designed only to work with ByteblasterMVTM download cables. Try using the ByteBlasterMV download cable if you have this problem when using the stand-alone Jam STAPL Player.
