2013.4 - Vivado - VCS Sim compile_simlib switch "-simulator_exec_path" causes error during library compilation

Description

when trying to compile my libraries for the vcs_mx library in Vivado, I used the command below:

compile_simlib -directory /home/sim_libs -simulator vcs_mx -simulator_exec_path <path to vcs_mx executable>

However, when I run this, I receive an error message stating that the executable cannot be found even though I have verified that this is correct.

How can I address this?

Solution

To work around this issue, you will need to set the vcs_mx environment variables before launching Vivado.
