14.2 - AXI BFM - AXI BFM not working on Modelsim 64-bit in Windows 7 OS


When tying to run any AXI BFM simulations on Modelsim 64-bit on Windows 7 OS, I see the error below on the console:

# Loading ./libxil_vsim.dll
# ** Error: (vsim-3193) Load of "./libxil_vsim.dll" failed: The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

How can I fix this?


This is a known issue in ISE Design Suite tools. To work around this, unzip the attached patch into the ISE install directory:


Note: This patch is no longer needed in the current version of the tools.
