Why can I not access my serial configuration device after the Arria II GX device that it is connected to has been configured using a Serial Vector Format (SVF) file?

Environment

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description

The Quartus® II software may be configured to generate an SVF file by checking the appropriate option in the Assignments -> Device -> Device and Pin Options... dialog box. 

If an Arria® II GX device with Active Serial configuration is configured using the Quartus II programmer or a third party boundary scan tool using an SVF file that is generated this way, then the attached Serial Configuration Device will no longer be accessible using the altasmi_parallel Megafunction or the Serial Flash Loader (SFL) IP.

Resolution

Generate the SVF file using the Quartus II programmer software as described in the related solution below, instead of via the Device options available for Quartus II Assembler.
