ISE Simulator (ISim) - "FATAL_ERROR:Simulator:CompilerAssert.h:40:1.36.10.7..."

Description


The following error occurs when I run a simulation on a design:

"FATAL_ERROR:Simulator:CompilerAssert.h:40:1.36.10.7 - Internal Compiler Error in file ../src/VhdlDecl.cpp at line 3187 Process will terminate.

For technical support on this issue, please open a WebCase with this project attached at http://www.xilinx.com/support."

How can I resolve this issue?

    function "+"(X,Y:work.COMPLEX.REAL_VECTOR) return work.COMPLEX.REAL_VECTOR is

    If the definition is changed to the following and use work.COMPLEX.all this will resovle the fatal error.

    function "+"(X,Y:REAL_VECTOR) return work.COMPLEX.REAL_VECTOR is
