8.2i ISE Simulator - Generated VCD file is empty when I use ISE Simulator.

Description

Keywords: simulation, power, estimation, XPower

General Description:
The ISE simulator Simulate Post-place & Route Model Process Properties allows me to select the "Generate a VCD file for Power Estimation" option. If this option is selected and a VCD file will be generated. But the size of file is 0kb. why?

Solution

This is a known problem of 8.2 ISIM.

To work around this problem, type "quit" on the simulation console.

This is fixed in 9.2 release.
