Solution

1

Modelsim is looking for an aim library that does not exist.

To get rid of the errors:
1. Find the modelsim.ini file in the modeltech_xe directory.
2. Change the permissions so that the file is not read-only.
3. Open the modelsim.ini file and use a semi-colon to comment out the line that contains "aim".
4. Save the modelsim.ini file.
5. Change the permissions back to read-only.
