VCS VHDL GT Wizard - Produces Incorrect "ucli_commands.key" file

Description

The following error occurs in VCS when I run asimulation of the GT Wizard Core:

"ucli% ##

ucli% ## THIS COPYRIGHT NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER MUST BE RETAINED AS ucli% ## PART OF THIS FILE AT ALL TIMES.
ucli% call {$vcdpluson}

file ucli_commands.key, line 62: Error-[UCLI-CALL-MHDL] call command failed
Execution of the $vcdpluson command failed, as the verilog task call was made from a non-verilog domain. Please make sure you are in verilog domain/scope before calling a verilog task.

ucli%"

Solution

This error is due to an incorrect "ucli_commands.key" file produced by the GT Wizard in the CORE Generator tool.

To work around this issue, modify the "ucli_commands.key" file as follows:

Current File Contents:

call {$vcdpluson}
run
call {$vcdplusclose}
quit

Correct File Contents:

dump -file vcdplus.vpd -type VPD
dump -add DEMO_TB
