MIG 7 Series - Vivado Simulator simulations fail in Windows environment across all interfaces

Description

Version Found: v1.6
Version Resolved and other Known Issues: See (Xilinx Answer 45195).

Vivado Simulatorsimulations fail for MIG 7 series design when the xsim_run.bat script is run in the Windows environment. The following XSIM error is seen:

ERROR: [XSIM-178] Signal EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION received
Printing stacktrace...
[0] (KiUserExceptionDispatcher+0x2e) [0x76fc1278] ..

Solution

This is due to an issue with the xsim_run.bat file created by MIGwhich needs to be modified for the Windows environment.There is no issue in Linux, but Windows users can work around the problem by opening xsim_run.bat in a text editor and replacing the following commands:

xelab work.sim_tb_top work.glbl -prj xsim_files.prj -L unisims_ver -L secureip -s xsim_test -debug typical
xsim -g -t xsim_options.tcl -wdb xsim_database.wdb xsim_test

with

call xelab work.sim_tb_top work.glbl -prj xsim_files.prj -L unisims_ver -L secureip -s xsim_test -debug typical
call xsim -g -t xsim_options.tcl -wdb xsim_database.wdb xsim_test
