2013.3 - Unable to compile the simulation libraries for Aldec Riviera


I am attempting to use the following command to compile the simulation libraries for Aldec Riviera in Vivado Design Suite 2013.3:

compile_simlib -directory C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2013.3/SimLib -simulator riviera -simulator_exec_path C:/Programme/Aldec/Riviera-PRO-2013.06.SR1-x64/bin/

However, running this command aborts with the following error:

ERROR: [Common 17-180] Spawn failed: No such file or directory

The log files contain the following message:

COMP96 ERROR COMP96_0055: "Cannot find referenced context element." "C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2013.3\data\vhdl\src\unisims\primitive\AND2B1L.vhd" 29 12


This issue is to be fixed in Design Suite 2013.4.

A tactical patch is available for 2013.3 which is attached the end of this answer record.
