13.4 COMPXLIB - "ERROR:Compxlib:292 - Failed to update the setup file(s) for simulator mti_se"

Description

When using COMPXLIB to compile simulation libraries for ModelSim, the following errors occur for every library compiled:

ERROR:Compxlib:292 - Failed to update the setup file(s) for simulator mti_se. Library verilog.secureip will not be compiled.

ERROR:Compxlib:292 - Failed to update the setup file(s) for simulator mti_se. Library verilog.unisim will not be compiled.

How can this be resolved?

Solution

The possible causes of this error are as follows:


  1. Spaces in the Output directory path.
    Check the compxlib.log file to see if the output directory into which the libraries are compiled have spaces in the path.
    For example: "Output directory => 'C:\Documents and Settings\E466894\simlib\EDK11.1_mti_se_nt\'"
    If this is the case, update the path to one without spaces.

  2. COMPXLIB not finding the correct modelsim.ini file. 
    Set the "MODELSIM" environment variable to point to the modelsim.ini file in the ModelSim installation directory.
    For example:
    MODELSIM = D:\modeltech_6.6b\win32\modelsim.ini

  3. When running the compxlib command, the user must specify the language and simulator being used, for example
     
    .../verilog/mti_se
     
    instead of
     
    ../<language>/<simulator>
