2015.3 Vivado Simulation - Export_simulation command gives "ERROR: [exportsim-Tcl-4] Export simulation is not supported" when VCS or IES are specified on Windows OS

Description

If I supply IES or VCS for the -simulator option in export_simulation on a Windows OS the following error occurs:

export_simulation  -lib_map_path "." -force -directory "./scripts2" -simulator ies
ERROR: [exportsim-Tcl-4] Export simulation is not supported for 'ies' on this platform.

export_simulation  -lib_map_path "." -force -directory "./scripts2" -simulator vcs
ERROR: [exportsim-Tcl-4] Export simulation is not supported for 'vcs' on this platform.


Solution

export_simulation was initially targeted for UNIX only with IES/VCS support and the option to target VCS or IES has not yet been implemented for the Windows operating systems.

As an alternative launch_simulation can be used to generate scripts if these simulators are targeted.
