ISE Simulator (ISIM) - "ERROR:Simulator:222 - Generated C++ compilation was unsuccessful"

Description

When I attempt to run a simulation in ISE Simulator, I receive the following error:

"ERROR:Simulator:418 - Compilation failed: D:/Program: Error code 193..."

"ERROR:Simulator:222 - Generated C++ compilation was unsuccessful"

How can I resolve this issue?

Solution

This error message occurs when the ISE Simulator engine runs into an exception.
Some possible fixes that might resolve the issue:

- Download and install the latest ISE software and updates.
- Ensure there are no spaces in the install path or project path.
- Clean up your project files.
- This problem might be caused by the inability of ISIM compilers to handle certain complicated constructs. Use the -v and -mt ISim compiler (fuse) switches to enable verbose messaging. Refer to (Xilinx Answer 32357), Resolution 1 and 2.
