Vivado 2015.3/2015.4 - export_simulation ignoring -lib_map_path option in Windows


On Windows, export_simulation ignores the -lib_map_path option used to specify the compiled library location for Questa/ModelSim.

Questa/ModelSim simulation fails as it cannot find the pre-compiled libraries.

This option works fine in Linux.


This is a known issue with export_simulation in Windows.

To work around it, manually copy modelsim.ini from the compiled library location before running simulation.

The issue has been fixed in Vivado 2016.1.
