11 EDK - "WARNING:EDK:797 - Cmd failed: \cygdrive\c\tools\Modeltech_6.4b\win32\vsim -version"

Description

When I set the simulator path, the Cygwin mounted drive is used instead of the normal Windows drive which results in the following warning message: 

 

"WARNING:EDK:797 - Cmd failed: \cygdrive\c\tools\Modeltech_6.4b\win32\vsim -version" 

 

For example, while in XPS, if I select the Default button in Preferences -> Simulation, the following path is used:  

\cygdrive\c\modelsimdir\vsim instead of C:\modelsimdir\vsim

Solution

To correct this problem: 

1. Select Edit > Preferences. 

2. Under the Simulation Category, modify the Simulator path as follows: 

Change: 

\cygdrive\c\ 

To:  

C:\
