Here are the steps to generate the Tcl file with Quartus II 4.0.

  1. Open the project in Quartus.
  2. From the menu choose Assignments->EDA Tool Settings
  3. Click on Timing Analysis to open up the Timing Analysis Panel.
  4. In the Timing Analysis Panel, select Tool Name to be Prime Time (VHDL Output from Quartus II).
  5. From the menu choose Processing->Start->Start EDA Netlist Writer
  6. This will create a directory called Timing in your project directory.
  7. The Timing directory will have a subdirectory called Primetime.
  8. The Primetine directory wil have the Tcl file with the name projectname_pt_vhd.tcl
