HDL Bencher - Testbench Waveform (.tbw) simulation processes hang when HDL Bencher is open.


Keywords: HDL Bencher, simulation, process, freeze, hang, multiple

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If the post-PAR simulation process is run with an HDL Bencher window open, the process stops while the following step is executed:

Starting: 'c:/xilinx/bin/nt/tb.exe /m "c:\testcase\design\design.tbw" "design2.v" "timesim_tfw"'.

If HDL Bencher is closed, the process will not continue.

NOTE: On Windows NT, you may see a message that states, "Multiple instances of HDL Bencher are not supported."


The HDL Bencher window must be closed before running any simulation processes.

If the process is frozen because HDL Bencher is open, you must close the application, stop the process, then restart it.
