13.1 PlanAhead - ISIM error about .mif file - ERROR:HDLCompiler:1030 - Cannot open file 'inpfile'


When running simulation in PlanAhead, the error below is received:

Starting static elaboration
ERROR:HDLCompiler:1030 - "N:/O.36/rtf/vhdl/src/XilinxCoreLib/fir_compiler_v5_0_sim_pkg.vhd" Line 4649: Cannot open file 'inpfile'.
ERROR:Simulator:777 - Static elaboration of top level VHDL design unit top_tb in library work failed


The cause of this error is that a .mif file is not found. 

This error has been seen when importing a project from 12.x into PlanAhead 13.1 and running ISIM on it.

If you encounter this issue in 13.1, you can add a .mif file manually as a work-around.
