2013.2 Vivado compile_simlib - ERROR:[common 17-70]: Application Exception: not found in path "D:\Programming"

When using compile_simlib to compile 3rd party simulation libraries for ModelSim, the following error occurs when the status comes to 83%.

ERROR:[common 17-70]: Application Exception: not found in path "D:\Programming"

ModelSim is installed in the "D:\Programming Files" directory on this Windows machine.

Solution

This error occurs because the path to the ModelSim executable contains space in it.
