ModelSim Xilinx Edition (MXE) 5.8c - "# ** Error: (vsim-11) Could not find C:\Modeltech_xe\win32xoem/../xilinx/vhdl/simprim.dcm_clock_divide_by_2"

Description

Keywords: DCM, timing simulation

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I run a timing simulation with a DCM, the following error occurs:

"# ** Error: (vsim-11) Could not find C:\Modeltech_xe\win32xoem/../xilinx/vhdl/simprim.dcm_clock_divide_by_2"

Why does this error occur?

Solution

This error message is caused by a problem with the Marked Libraries for MXE 5.8c Service Pack 3.

There is a patched version of the SimPrim libraries available at:
http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/mentor/mxe5.8c_6.3isp3_simulation_libraries_simprims_patch.zip

NOTE: Do not use this patch with any other version of MXE.
