4.1i ISE - When I load MXE from Project Navigator, "Fatal error(0002): The system cannot find the file specified; Done: Failed with exit code: 0002" is reported


Keywords: ModelSim, MXE, Project Nav, 0002, ERROR, Exit code, ISE 4.1, cannot find the file specified

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I invoke the ModelSim simulator from Project Navigator, the process fails and the following error is reported:

"Fatal error(0002): The system cannot find the file specified.
Done: Failed with exit code: 0002."


This problem occurs because, when Project Navigator was installed, the following REGISTRY key was not correctly assigned:


The value should be "modelsim.exe".

To fix this problem:
1. Using administrator privileges, go to Edit -> Preferences -> Partner Tools inside Project Navigator. Then, click on the "Browse" button.
2. Browse to C:\Modeltech_xe\win32xoem and select the modelsim.exe file.
3. Click the "Apply" button, and select "OK".
4. Exit Project Navigator.
5. Restart Project Navigator and run the simulation.
