ModelSim - Fatal: (vsim-3729) for mixed-language PCIe example design
The following error is seen when running functional simulation of the PCIe example design in ModelSim.

Why does this occur and how can I resolve it?
The range mismatch can occur due to an incorrect order of library loading in a mixed-language design.
For example, you might set the language as VHDL and simulation needs to compile both VHDL and Verilog source files.
In the generated ModelSim simulation script (simulate_mti.do), the order is expected to be unisims_ver prior to unisim.
