Isim or VIvado Simulator recompile without restart

Hi, 

I was wondeirng if any of the ISim or Vivado versions have the ability to recompile the source codes without requiring to relaunch the simulator?

 

Even though Vivado simulator is fast, but it is really slow to open and close the simulator. I have a very tiny module, but every time that I need to make a small change it takes a very long time to close and relaunch the simulator, and I was wondering if there is a work around solution?

 

Thanks, 

--Rudy

There is a "Relaunch Simulation" button in the menu bar

That "relaunch" is nothing more than just closing it manually and then reopening it. It is going through the same lenghty process again. I don't think "relaunch" is recompiling it witought closing it !!

Hi,

Vivado simulator does not support incremental compilation yet. Check this article http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/57239.html

Is there a way to do a full recompile and restart the simulation without closing and re-opening the Vivado simulator?

there is no way of doing it as of now without using relaunch option to compile the files.
