CompXLib Error when compiling libraries: ERROR:Compxlib:267 - COMPXLIB[sim]:

Description

I am using the following command to compile libraries:
compxlib.exe -s mti_se -l all -p r:\modelsim_6.5d\win32 -arch all -lib all -dir x:\projects\epi\modelsim_xilinx_libraries_114i6.5d -verbose 

However I am receiving the following error:


ERROR:Compxlib:267 - COMPXLIB[sim]: Unable to automatically find executables for
simulator 'mti_se'.
Simulator 'mti_se' is ignored.

Solution

This error occurs when the incorrect value for the -s switch is used.

In the case, QuestaSim is being used but the "questa" value has not been used for the -s switch.
 
- s questa is required to indicate that the libraries will be compiled using QuestaSim.

The command used should be similar to the following:
compxlib.exe - s questa -l all -p r:\questasim_6.5d\win32 -arch all -lib all -dir x:\projects\epi\modelsim_xilinx_libraries_114i6.5d -verbose 

Another work-around is to use the GUI.
