10.1.03i - ERROR:Simulator:35 - Sdf file ".sdf" specified does not exist or can not be read

Description

When performing a post-PAR simulation in ISIM, the following error is given.

ERROR:Simulator:35 - Sdf file ".sdf" specified does not exist or can not be read

I am using a .tbw as testbench. The SDF does exist in \netgen\par.

Solution

This error can occur ifProject Navigator incorrectly associates the top level HDL source with the testbench, rather than the _timesim.v/vhd.

Please take a look at fuse.log. Find the project file specified in fuse -prj to verify if this is the case.

The workaround is to remove the top level source and re-add it to the project.
