13.1 CompXlib - Unable to automatically find executables for simulator 'mti_​de' from the following paths

Description

I am receiving the following when attempting to "Compile HDL Simulation Libraries" using ModelSim DE:
 

Compxlib - COMPXLIB[sim]: Unable to automatically find executables for simulator 'mti_de' from the following paths:
    C:/Modeltech6.4a_de/win32pe

Simulator 'mti_de' is ignored.

 


Solution

This can occur for two reasons:
 
  1. The ModelSim DE installation is not complete.
  2. The ISE Project Option or "Integrated Tools" are pointing to a ModelSim PE or SE installation instead of the DE installation.
