4.2is3 ISE - Why does ModelSim fail when launching it under Design Entry Utilities in Webpack?

Description

Keywords: ModelSim, XilinxCorelib, Webpack, Starter

Urgency :standard

General Description: Why does ModelSim give the following error message when launching it under Design Entry Utilities in Webpack:

# ERROR: Could not open library xilinxcorelib_ver at


Solution

ModelSim calls a tcl script .pref.tcl which then calls topleveldesign.ldo This file contains the command vsim -L xilinxcorelib. Since Webpack does not contain CoreGen these libraries cannot be called. A work around for this issue would be to open the ldo file and delete the part of the vsim command containing -L xilinxcorelib. Then the ModelSim will run properly.

This problem has been fixed in 5.1.
