8.1.02i ISE - Error: (vsim-SDF-3196) Failed to find SDF file "main.sdf"

Description


When I run Post-Fit simulation, I receive I the following error:



** Error: (vsim-SDF-3196) Failed to find SDF file "main.sdf"

Solution


This problem happened because Project Navigator writes out incorrect ".tdo" file. This problem is fixed in ISE 8.2i.



To work around this issue:



1. Copy the *timesim.sdf files to the project main directory.

2. Modify the "tdo" file:



Change the lines

## Compile Post-PAR Model vcom -explicit -93 "main.vhd"

vsim -t 1ps -sdfmax /UUT=main.sdf -lib work TEST1_VHD do {TEST1_VHD.udo}

view wave

add wave
