2016.X - Simulation - ModelSim generates error when simulating XPM


When using ModelSim to run simulation with XPM, I receive the following errors:

# ** Error: C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2016.2/data/ip/xpm/xpm_memory/hdl/xpm_memory_base.sv(2423): data type of variable mem not allowed in force.
# ** Error: C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2016.2/data/ip/xpm/xpm_memory/hdl/xpm_memory_base.sv(2425): data type of variable mem not allowed in release.


The errors are seen when using older versions of ModelSim when an XPM is present in the design.

Please refer to (UG973) Vivado Release Notes to find the supported version.

For Vivado 2016.2, the supported ModelSim version is 10.4d and newer.
