13.3 EDK XPS - The option to select Modelsim as the simulator is grayed out

Description

Starting with EDK 13.2, the option to select Modelsim as the simulator is grayed out in 64-bit Windows XP and Windows 7 installations.

Solution

The tools at the time of release had been tested with the Modelsim 6.6d version of the simulator which did not have a 64-bit Windows compatible simulator. 

As a result this option has been grayed out in 64-bit tool installations.

As a workaround, Modelsim can be selected as the simulator for 32-bit tools on the same setup.

32-bit Xilinx Platform Studio can be invoked from the 32-bit ISE command prompt.
