3.1 System Generator for DSP - Why do I get "libhsimengine.dll" and "libPortability.dll" when trying to open the Xilinx BlockSet in MATLAB R13?


Keywords: SysGen, MATLAB, Simulink, install, libhsimengine.dll, libPortability.dll

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Why do I get "libhsimengine.dll" and "libPortability.dll" when trying to open the Xilinx BlockSet in MATLAB R13?

The following error messages may be reported:

1. In the MATLAB console:
"Could not load D:\MATLAB_R13\toolbox\xilinx\sysgen\lib\libhsimengine.dll even though libhsimengine.dll was present in the sysgen\lib directory."

2. From a pop-up window:
"The procedure entry point? ReadLine@Port_String@@QAE_NAAVistream@@@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library libPortability.dll"
NOTE: This popup error message might not disappear and you might need to stop MATLAB from the Task Manager.


This error message appears when System Generator for DSP is installed with the wrong version of the Xilinx ISE tools.

Please see (Xilinx Answer 17966).
