2016.1 - Simulation - Export Simulation leads to an error when a space is in the directory path

Description

In export simulation on windows, if the directory name contains a space, the following error is seen when generating scripts:

export_simulation -force -directory "C:/my_projects/space test/project_1" -simulator xsim -ip_user_files_dir C:/my_projects/space test/project_1/project_1.ip_user_files -ipstatic_source_dir C:/my_projects/space test/project_1/project_1.ip_user_files/ipstatic -use_ip_compiled_libs
INFO: [exportsim-Tcl-40] Using compiled simulation libraries for IPs
ERROR: [exportsim-Tcl-0] Directory path specified with the '-ip_user_files_dir' does not exist:'C:/Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Xilinx/Vivado/
{C:/my_projects/space test/project_1/project_1.ip_user_files}
ERROR: [Common 17-39] 'send_msg_id' failed due to earlier errors.

Solution

This issue is resolved in Vivado 2016.3.

To work around the issue in earlier versions you can apply quotes "" or brackets {} around path names with spaces in command line mode.

For Example:

export_simulation -force -directory "C:/my_projects/space test/project_1" -simulator xsim -ip_user_files_dir "C:/my_projects/space test/project_1/project_1.ip_user_files" -ipstatic_source_dir "C:/my_projects/space test/project_1/project_1.ip_user_files/ipstatic" -use_ip_compiled_libs
