2013.3 Vivado - Vivado is not generating the simulation mem files for a system containing a XPS sub-module on Windows

Description

I have a Vivado project that contains an XPS submodule. I have exported to SDK and created the ELF file. I have then associated this ELF file to the processor. However, if I Run Simulation, the mem files are not created.

How can I resolve this issue?

Solution

This issue is only seen on in Windows.

To fix this issue, highlight the ELF file in Project Manager, then under Properties, select MEMDATA from the drop-down. In the ADDR_MAP_CELLS property, set this to dut/<processor_name>.

An example is shown below:


Next, Run Simulation, and the mem file should be created.
