ISE Simulator (ISim) - "ERROR:HDLCompiler:1044 - "Unknown" Line 0: /data/Xilinx/11.1/ISE/verilog/hdp/lin64/xip/ ..."

Description

Keywords: HDLCompiler:1044, HDLCompiler:559, GT11, Virtex-4 HardIP, SecureIP

I am using ISE Simulator 11 Update 3 (11.3) to simulate a design that instantiates Virtex-4 FPGA GT (GT11) primitives. However, simulation fails during compilation with the following errors:

"ERROR:HDLCompiler:1044 - "Unknown" Line 0: /data/Xilinx/11.1/ISE/verilog/hdp/lin64/xip/gt11_ver/
@g@t11_@s@w@i@f@t.sdb was created using an incompatible version_number, backward compatibility is not supported yet."
"ERROR:HDLCompiler:559 - "/build/xfndry10/L.57/rtf/verilog/src/unisims/GT11.v" Line 2436: Could not find module/primitive <GT11_SWIFT>."

How can I resolve this issue?

Solution

This is a known issue with ISim in ISE Design Suite 11.3 tools and has been fixed in ISE Design Suite 11 Update 4 (11.4).
