As I showed in my previous post,I’m going to test my CoreEP4CE6 board. It is based on Altera Cyclone IV FPGA (EP4CE6E22C8N) . I got my Altera USB Blaster (bought from here) today and tested the FPGA .
I connected the power cable to the FPGA board and connected the JTAG cable from USB Blaster. The both devices were powered by USB. I installed Altera Quartus II Web Edition which is the default IDE for Altera FPGAs. You can download the free web edition from here
I thought to check the board by powering up a LED. I just wanted to connect the LED on PIN11 to Vcc to do this. You can follow the detailed steps on this from here

The pin assignment (according to the schematic of the board):
The hardware test (you can see the LED in bottom left is ON):
