What do I do if I get the error, "Program failure: FLASH bulk erase unsuccessful -- check device Vpp supply voltage" when programming an EPC2 device with the MAX+PLUS<SUP>&reg;</SUP>&nbsp;II software version&nbsp;10.12?

Description

In addition to the suggestion to check the device VPP supply voltage mentioned in the error message, this error message can occur when programming an EPC2 device with a Programmer Object File (.pof) in the MAX+PLUS II software version 10.12 due to a problem within the MAX+PLUS II software.

There is a patch (M9) for the MAX+PLUS II software version 10.12 available from Altera Applications. To obtain the patch, contact file a service request on-line at mySupport.

This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future version of the MAX+PLUS II software
