Launching ISim simulation engine GUI... "E:/Documents and Settings/Jamil/My Documents/Downloads/exp5/ppm_isim_beh.exe" -gui -tclbatch isim.cmd -wdb "E:/Documents and Settings/Jamil/My Documents/Downloads/exp5/ppm_isim_beh.wdb" ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387 - TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'invalid command name "dpm_fail"'. Tcl_ErrnoId: unknown error Tcl_ErrnoMsg: No error _cmd: ::xilinx::Dpm::dpm_chTransformExecute dpm_isimRunExe $piThisInterface errorInfo: invalid command name "dpm_fail" while executing "dpm_fail "ISim simulation engine failed to launch" " (procedure "dpm_isimRunExe" line 423) invoked from within "$sCmd $iTransformInstance $sCmdArgs" (procedure "dpm_chTransformExecuteEngine" line 101) invoked from within "dpm_chTransformExecuteEngine $sFlowProc $iInterface $bRunTransformWithEmptyInputSet " (procedure "::xilinx::Dpm::dpm_chTransformExecute" line 3) invoked from within "::xilinx::Dpm::dpm_chTransformExecute dpm_isimRunExe $piThisInterface"
This is the output in the console when I try to run ISIM, with a behavioral simulation. I don't understand what the error is or how I can fix it. As far as I know, I didn't receive any errors or unexpected warnings when I ran a synthesis, so I don't know why this is happening. (This file was working before for someone else, and I didn't make any changes in the schematic).

Try Project > Cleanup Project Files or recreate a new project.

I'm Having the same problem, I've cleaned the project and remade it, but the error persists. I'm using ISE 13.1, and I'd really appreciate other answer than: this issue is solved in the next ISE version.

What if you run simulation alternatively in command line?
1. Open "ISE Design Suite Command Prompt" from Start > Xilinx ISE Design Suite xx > Accessories
2. Cd to your project directory
3. ppm_isim_beh.exe -gui -tclbatch isim.cmd
