Can not find ISim simulator

Hi All,

 

This seems to be some silly problem but its driving me crazy. I downloaded the Xilinx 11.1 Design Suite (webpack). But after downloading and completing all the procedures, I find that I dont have the ISim simulator for the behavioural simulation. The Simulator drop down tab shows all the other simulators like the ModelSim, NC, VCS, but not the ISim Simulator which is the one I need.

 

Please help me out in locating where I went wrong. Did I go wrong somewhere in the installation procedure? or Is there something more to be done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Some additional info: I have a 64 bit Win 7. 

 

 

Thanks in advance,

 

ps: cross posting from another thread since this seems to be the more appropriate one.

digital_spy,

 

please check out our OR support page here:

I _thought_ that were supporting x64 Windows now, but it looks like maybe not.

Re: Can not find ISim simulator

The 64bit ISE doesnt have the ISim simulator , but the 32bit ISE (which comes in the design suite) has the ISim simulator and it does work on my 64bit Win 7 without problem.

 

Anyways I have installed the model sim exe too and integrated that with the ISE tool. So now I have more choices :)

Re: Can not find ISim simulator

Model sim needs to be downloaded and the location of the modelsim.exe should be given in the Edit - > Preferences in the ISE design suite.

 

Having done that, all you need is to go to the design properties , right click and change the simulator to Modelsim. 

 

It should work. Atleast it worked for me. Though I had to go their(Mentor Graphics) website and download the new license file to get started.

 

Btw I faced some other issues with ISE 11.1 too (while using the core generator)..ISE 9.2 worked fine for me for the same set of files.
