ERROR: [Common 17-39] 'launch_simulation' failed due to earlier errors.

Jump to solution

I am using Vivado v2016.1 (64-bit). My operating system is Linux Mint 18.3

 

When I run a simulation of my program I get the following error message:

ERROR: [Common 17-39] 'launch_simulation' failed due to earlier errors.

 

followed by:

[USF-XSim-62] 'elaborate' step failed with error(s). Please check the Tcl console output or '/home/denbigh1974/Documents/Xilinx/20180205_project_wk1/project_2/project_2.sim/sim_1/behav/elaborate.log' file for more information.
 [Vivado 12-4473] Detected error while running simulation. Please correct the issue and retry this operation.

 

When I look at elaborate.log it says:

I'm a beginner. I have to use version 2016.1 to match the version at university.

 

Please could you suggest a solution to my problem?

 

Thank you.

Hi @denbigh1974,

 

Can you please try your design with latest version of Vivado(2017.4). Please share your design if you are facing the same issue with latest version of Vivado.

 

 

Thanks,

Sunilkumar

I should add that, even though the log file contains the line

ERROR: [XSIM 43-3409] Failed to compile generated C file xsim.dir/tutorial_tb_behav/obj/xsim_1.c.
the xsim_1.c file has been created.

Thank you for your fast reply.

 

"Can you please try your design with latest version of Vivado(2017.4)"

 

Presumably, I have to uninstall 2016.1 and get new licence to do this?

 

My problem is that I have to also transfer my design files to another system running Vivado 2016.1 under Windows. I don't think that the files in 2017.4 will be backward compatible?

 

Is there anything else I can try first or do you think it's a bug?

Hi, when I run a project on vivado(vivado 2018.2 on windows10 OS), I also face this errer: [Common 17-39] 'launch_simulation' failed due to earlier errors.

I wonder what the reason is and how to solve this problem.

Many thanks.

Hello!. I had that same error after a problem in a simulation. After that mistake, every time I tried, I continued to appear. What I did was close the program, delete the files in the simulation folder of my project, when starting the program, the error disappeared.

I use Vivado 2019.1 in Windows 8.1
