I've tried in compatibility mode with W7 but it doesn't work well.

Do you have any solution for this problem?

This is because the MinGW that ISim uses doesn't work with Windows 8. Consider install a new version of MinGW and paste it to C:\Xilinx\12.4\ISE_DS\ISE\gnu\MinGW

permanent solution 1: on win 10 

Find the "installation directory \ Xilinx \ 14.x \ ISE_DS \ ISE \ gnu \ MinGW \ 5.0.0 \ nt \ libexec \ gcc \ mingw32 \ 3.4.2 \ collect2.exe" and delete it and re-run the emulator, the problem resolved! !

 

ya don't worry just delete this or cut and paste somewhere as else, now re run the code or test bench it will work.

 

keep on coding and sharing

please accept the solution if find working

 

No need to update any minGW

The solution from gaurav_acad worked perfectly for me. I am on Windows 10 using PlanAhead. Even a minimal testbench example gave me a "Not Linkable"-Error. Deleting "collect2.exe" did the trick: ISIM is now starting.

I recently installed ISE 14.7 on my windows 10 laptop. I write a simple code for 3 input xor gate and could synthesize rtl and technology schematic but unfortunately could not simulate the behavioral model using ISim Simulator.

It was showing the above-stated error. 

I have also linked matlab 2013b with xilinx system generator. 

Please help me out asap; I have a mini project to be submitted next week.

Well, I use ISE 14.7 in windows 10. If you want simulate your project, you should try the 64-bit Project Navigator. But it is not convenient, you have to crack this program.

Step 1: Open your installation folder: Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64

Step 2: Find "libPortability.dll" and rename to "libPortability.dll.orig"

Step 3: Copy "libPortabilityNOSH.dll" to same folder and rename it to "libPortability.dll"

You will have 3 files in this folder "Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64"

- libPortability.dll.orig

- libPortability.dll

- libPortabilityNOSH.dll

Step 4: Find the folder: "Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\common\lib\nt64" and do Step 2 and Step 3

P/S: You can watch this video to crack, however it is Vietnamese Tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRNvcoQkF6M

hi friend If you want to link system generator , you may have issues reason;
First: At the time of installation if you don't have compatible MATLAB version for ISE
Second : if MATLAb is not installed a time of Xilinx installation.

In both the case find the compatible version and then open start menu, right click on system generator icon to configure matlab and using run as Admin. configure the setting.

I had the same running isim problem with Xilinx-ISE under Windows 10..

I'm not using any screwy mingw or whatever that Linux emulation some people seem to be using is in the comments.

 

And I got it to work!!

Noticed there is a nt and nt64. Check the path by right clicking on the ISE Design Suite 14.7 icon.

Target Path : C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\settings64.bat C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt64\ise.exe

Notice the "nt64".. it was "nt" after installation... and isim had the 861 error.

When I ran it with the "nt64" running the executables.. scripts or whatever in the nt64 directory it worked when I ran isim.

Compiling and everything seemed to work fine in the /nt/ directory(but not isim)..

Why wouldn't it default set it to /nt64/ directory since it is a 64-bit system.

Since these days everything is 64-bit I speculate maybe they don't bother to test the 32-bit versions as much so miss more errors... But that is just speculation. 

From the [help]-[about] it shows if it is /nt/ or /nt64/.

 

So if you are running /nt/ and isim gives the 861 error try /nt64/..

Rebuilding-ALL might not hurt in implementation and redo all simulation.. probably won't help either but might as well if things are failing.

 

If this helps anybody. No thanks necessary. Please send me money.., lots of money.

Huge help my friend!  Prior in doing this work-around, I had no luck running the 64bit version on Windows 10. I had given up and just used the 32bit version.  I tried to sim a project in the 32bit version and got the 861 error and begun digging.

 

One quick tweak I did because I didn't have libPortabilityNOSH.dll in C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\common\lib\nt64.  In this directory...

I renamed libPortability.dll to libPortability.dll.orig and copied libPortability.dll and libPortabilityNOSH I created in step 2 & 3 located in C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\lib\nt64 to C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\common\lib\nt64 so I had a 3 files.  So far this has worked great!!!  Really appreciate the info!
