ModelSim (EE, SE) - I cannot delete the MODELSIM_TCL Environment Variable (Windows NT).

Description

Keywords: variable, NT, MODELSIM_TCL, delete

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I compile the Xilinx simulation models in ModelSim PE using the TCL script, I cannot delete the MODELSIM_TCL variable. Once deleted, it reappears, launching the TCL GUI when ModelSim is loaded.

How do I delete it?

Solution

1

This occurs because of a problem with the way Windows NT updates the environment variables.

To stop the TCL script from being executed, delete the value of the variable and set it.

2

If the variable needs to be removed, deleting the variable from the entry will also solve the issue:

1. Run "regedit".

2. Browse to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER/environment entry.

3. Delete the unwanted variable.
