5.1i Project Navigator, MXE, ModelSim - When the location of the Model Tech simulator is changed, Project Navigator must be closed and reopened

Description

Keywords: Simulation, Project, Navigator, Proj, Nav, MXE, MTI, Model, Sim, partner, tools, executable, preferences

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When the location of the Model Tech simulator in Project Navigator is changed, Project Navigator must be closed and reopened before the new location will be used.

Solution

You can change the location of the Model Tech simulator in Project Navigator as follows:

1. Select Edit -> Preferences.
2. Select the "Partner Tools" tab.
3. Browse to the location of the Model Tech simulator that you would like Project Navigator to launch when a simulation is run.

For ModelSim SE or PE, the path will be similar to:
C:\Modeltech_5.6e\win32

For ModelSim XE, the path will be similar to:
C:\Modeltech_xe\win32xoem

After you have made the new selection, close Project Navigator, then reopen it.

This problem is fixed in the 6.1i software release.
