Eclipse does not start after full Quartus Prime instalation

The following instructions are also included in the <Intel Quartus installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/README


  1. Download CDT 8.8.1 which is Eclipse C/C++ IDE for Mars.2
    a. Windows:
    b. Linux:
  2. Extract the downloaded file into /nios2eds/bin. You should see /nios2eds/bin/eclipse
    folder after extraction is done.
  3. Rename /nios2eds/bin/eclipse folder to /nios2eds/bin/eclipse_nios2
  4. Extract /nios2eds/bin/ (or tar.gz for Linux) to
    /nios2eds/bin. The extraction will override files in /nios2eds/bin/eclipse_nios2.
  5. Verify the extraction is done correctly by making sure you see /nios2eds/bin/eclipse_nios2/plugin_customization.ini file
  6. You can now launch Nios2 II SBT for Eclipse via eclipse-nios2.exe
