Hi,

I am unable to sign up with Intel.
Where can I find the Quartus II software ?
I would like to have the JTAG option as a backup incase the EXE update goes wrong and I brick my vampire 4.

Some help would be great

Thanks

Please note that you not need the full Quartus.
You only need the programmer.

I would start doing the update with the EXE from Amiga OS.
This is most convenient and for me never failed.

OK, Thanks, I managed to find the software.

I needed it incase of a power outage during the update as I dont have UPS.

I was reading another thread where someone bricked their vampire and brought it back to life with the USB Blaster.

Now I have the software and my USB Blaster I purchased 2 years ago I sould be protected.

I had also some problems to download quartus some time a go. I got older version 17.0 and that worked flawless.

Quartus full program is huge, the programmer is 10-100 times smaller
Any version of the programmer software will work.
