2016.1 - compile_simlib - Abnormal program termination (EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION)


The following runtime error occurs when I run compile_simlib:

Abnormal program termination (EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION)
Please check 'xxx/hs_err_pidxxxxxx.log' for details


This crash could occur when the simulator and simulator exec paths are incorrectly specified.

For example:

compile_simlib -force -language all -dir {C:/test_s } -simulator riviera -simulator_exec_path {R:/tools/active-hdl/10.2_64/BIN} -library all

Please check your compile_simlib command and ensure that the -simulator_exec_path option points to the correct path.

The issue will be resolved in Vivado 2016.3. An "invalid path" message will now be presented instead of a crash.
