14.2 - AXI BFM - AXI BFM not working on Modelsim 64-bit in Windows 7 OS

Description

When tying to run any AXI BFM simulations on Modelsim 64-bit on Windows 7 OS, I see the error below on the console:

# Loading ./libxil_vsim.dll
# ** Error: (vsim-3193) Load of "./libxil_vsim.dll" failed: The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.
#

How can I fix this?

Solution

This is a known issue in ISE Design Suite tools. To work around this, unzip the attached patch into the ISE install directory:

C:\Xilinx\14.2\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64

Note: This patch is no longer needed in the current version of the tools.
