10.1 Compxlib - "Error: (vcom-1902) Unrecognized option or option requires an argument: -novopt..."


When I attempt to compile ISE libraries, the following error occurs: 


Error: (vcom-1902) Unrecognized option or option requires an argument: -novopt. Use the -help option for complete vcom usage.


This error occurs when an older version of ModelSim is used with CompXlib where a switch is not supported.  


For information on the supported versions of 3rd party simulators, please refer to the Synthesis and Simulation guide located at:
