Failed to launch MegaWizard Plug-In Manager. Altera Unique Chip ID v17.0 could not be found in the specified library paths.

Environment

  • Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition
  • Unique Chip ID Intel® FPGA IP
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
    Description

    Due to a problem in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition Software version 17.0 and later, you may see this error when you try to upgrade the Altera Unique Chip ID through the menu Project > Upgrade IP.

     

    Resolution

    To work around this problem, add Altera Unique Chip ID IP from the IP list and make sure you use the same instance name as the current IP. 

    When upgrading the design, follow the flow as above.

    If building any design that uses Altera Unique Chip ID from Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition software versions 17.0 to 18.1, you can use qsys to add in the IP and save it as qsys file. This will force us to use new infrastructure, and this problem will not happen.
