3.1 EST - An attempt to run a simulation flow leads to: "Error: (vish-19) Failed to access library 'x_sprim1x_usim_ndb' ..."


Keywords: EDK, EST, SimGen, simulation, MicroBlaze, PowerPC, behavioral

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to run a simulation from EDK, the following error appears in the DOS window:

"Reading C:/Modeltech_SE/tcl/vsim/pref.tcl
** Error: (vish-19) Failed to access library 'x_sprim1x_usim_ndb' at
No such file or directory. (errno = ENOENT)
** Error: (vish-19) Failed to access library 'x_sprim1x_usim_ndb' at
No such file or directory. (errno = ENOENT)"


To avoid this error, check the following items after you install the EDK Software:

- Be sure that you are compiling the libraries correctly as stated in the EDK "Getting Started" documentation (edk_getstarted.pdf). This file is located in the "doc" directory of the EDK installation.

- Ensure that the behavioral libraries are updated to your current ModelSim SE version by entering the following command in the DOS window:

vmap_edk_libs $EDK/edk_nd_libs

where "$EDK" is the path to the EDK build.

- Update your ModelSim Version using the following command:

vmap_edk_libs -refresh $XILINX_EDK/edk_nd_libs
