13.1 EDK 3rd Party Sim Tool- Unable to compile simulation libraries for Questa or launch QuestaSim


I am using a Windows 7 64 bit machine and trying to compile Xilinx Libraries with QuestaSim.

However some options are grayed out and I am unable to select the correct option. 

Also when running the simulation using QuestaSim the below error is received:

ERROR:Compxlib - COMPXLIB[sim]: Unable to automatically find executables for simulator 'mti_se' from the following paths:

Currently selected simulator is mti; the specified simulation library was compiled with questa


This issue arises when attempting to simulate EDK designs using QuestaSim.

Currently Questasim is not supported in compedklib and the only supported 3rd party simulators are Modelsim SE (mti_se) and NCSIM.

Because of this the option for Questasim is grayed out.

Also, while running the simulation it searches for the Modelsim SE version, when this is not found it generates the above error and the simulation stops.
