13.1 Project Navigator - ModelSim/Questa 6.6d/10.0 fails when launching from ISE

Description

When I launch ModelSim 6.6d or 10.0 from the ISE tools, it always issues an error.

Why do I see this error and how can I work around it?

Example of error message:

---ModelSim 6.6d log---:

# // ModelSim SE 6.6d Nov 1 2010
# //
# // Copyright 1991-2010 Mentor Graphics Corporation
# // All Rights Reserved.

# vsim -do \{do \{testbench.fdo\}\}
# ** Error: (vsim-19) Failed to access library 'work' at "work".
# No such file or directory. (errno = ENOENT)
# Error loading design

Solution

This problem is due to a change made in ModelSim/Questa 6.6d/10.0. when launching modelsim.exe with a Tcl command to a windows system command.

This issue has been fixed in the latest version of ModelSim/Questa.

To work around the problem manually, reload the "do" files (fdo, tdo, etc.).

To fix the problem in your current version of ModelSim/Questa:

1. Obtain the new ModelSim Tcl file available from Mentor Graphics (See: TechNote MG538124)
 
2. Copy the 'modelsim' file to <modeltech_install_dir>/tcl/vsim/
