12.2 Project Navigator - "Error: Unable to create ... when simulating design containing XPS project as Submodule"


I am attempting to simulate in ISE Design Suite 12.1 using ModelSim SE/PE when the XPS project is a submodule, butthe following error occurs:

"Started : "Simulate Behavioral Model".

> executing 'C:/tools/modeltech_6.4f/win32/vsim.exe -version' to get the mti_se version...
> Modelsim version is 6.4f
Determining pre-compiled simulation library path information...
Error: Unable to create C:/test/xps_project_for_pcores/ise/system/system.extractLibData.tcl
Reason: couldn't open "C:/test/xps_project_for_pcores/ise/system/system.extractLibData.tcl": no such file or directory"


Project Navigator is always pointing toa subdirectory named system.
To work around the issue, you can manually create the "system" directory in thepath listed in the error message.
This issue is resolved in ISE Design Suite 12.3.
