I've upload a troubleshoot guide for Win and Arrow USB Programmer driver setup files:

* hope this helps.


After trying various drivers 2.1, 2.2 etc nothing seemed to work until the following was done....then bang appeared in quartus and programmed without issues - thanks :)

I had some troubles with my MAX1000 programming interface, in particular the FT2232 had default configuration and Quartus couldn't communicate with.

For whom can't use FT_PROG I wrote some lines on my website.
