14.1 CompXlib - This version of the compiler is incompatible with the library .dat file.

Description

When compiling the EDK libraries with ModelSim, a number of errors are produced similar to the following:

** Error: /build/si10/EDK_P.15xf/env/Databases/IP3_hw_04240158/QA/P/EDK_P.15xf/output/export/processor/hardware/pcores/xps_usb2_device_v7_00_a/hdl/vhdl/dre.vhd(385): near "0.0": This version of the compiler is incompatible with the library .dat file.
** Error: /build/si10/EDK_P.15xf/env/Databases/IP3_hw_04240158/QA/P/EDK_P.15xf/output/export/processor/hardware/pcores/xps_usb2_device_v7_00_a/hdl/vhdl/dre.vhd(385): near "0.0": This version of the compiler is incompatible with the library .dat file.
** Error: /build/si10/EDK_P.15xf/env/Databases/IP3_hw_04240158/QA/P/EDK_P.15xf/output/export/processor/hardware/pcores/xps_usb2_device_v7_00_a/hdl/vhdl/dre.vhd(385): VHDL Compiler exiting

What is the reason for this?

Solution

These error occur when an unsupported version of ModelSim is being used. 

This has been seen with both ModelSim 6.6d and ModelSim 10.0a.

Please ensure that you are using a supported version of the simulator for a given ISE release. 

See the following document for supported versions in 14.1.

Errors do not occurs when ModelSim 10.1a is used.
