    Default What is VTAP10?

    Hi guys. So I have my Max 10 development kit installed and am checking to be sure I have the drivers installed properly.
    Quartus Prime 17.1 is running fine.

    But now I have what seems to be a problem.

    The Intel Max10 Dev board runs the included board software OK, when it comes to using the programmer, I have questions.

    I have been able to get a simple design to program and run, but only after fiddling with 'auto-detect', and removing a detected hardware called VTAP10.
    There is no VTAP10 showing up in the tutorial demo I followed, but the tutorial was using 15.0.

    I could use a little help.
    What is VTAP10 and how does it fit into the picture?
    Is the VTAP10 hardware part of the Altera/Intel Development board, or am I looking at a bad USB-blaster driver install or other mess up?
    What documentation should I reference to understand this part better? Thanks for your help.

    Yes, it is virtual JTAG device is provided within the Onboard USB-Blaster II and it provides access to diagnostic hardware and board identification information.
    Refer MAX 10 FPGA Development Kit User Guide for “VTAP” & bellow thread,
