Can't run ISIM and I don't understand the error: ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387

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).

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.

Re: Can't run ISIM and I don't understand the error: ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387

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
