Being Altera/Intel’s primary supported platform, I wouldn’t except such issue with Windows. Bad drivers are still bad drivers, so I’d try OpenOCD route if there are any problems with Quartus or the drivers shipped with it. You can use other JTAG programmers with OpenOCD as well, but keep in mind that you can’t use any Altera-specific features (e.g. SignalTap) with it.
