System Generator for DSP - Error "Unable to load model file.." occurs when trying to open mdl file


When I'm trying to open the a Simulink model, I encounter the following errors: 


"Error using => open at 162 

Unable to load model file '<file_name>.mdl' due to the presence of characters that are not supported in the current character encoding setting 'GBK' ..."


The problem usually occurs in non-English operating systems.  


To resolve the problem, run the following command in the MATLAB console: 


bdclose all;
