FATAL_ERROR: Vivado Simulator kernel has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover.

I tried to simulate the testbench for this code given below but I get this error: FATAL_ERROR: Vivado Simulator kernel has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover. And the simulation never ends.

module d_flip_flop(
    input d,clk,reset,
    output reg q
    );
    always@(posedge clk or negedge reset)
    begin
    if(!reset)
    q<=0;
    else 
    q<=d;
    end
endmodule

The testbench code is:

`timescale 1ns / 1ps

endmodule

Please help me to solve this problem.

I cannot reproduce the failure using the exact RTL code. How did you launch simulation? What is Vivado version?

Don’t forget to reply, kudo, and accept as solution.
If starting with Versal take a look at our Versal Design Process Hub and our Versal Blogs.

I use Vivado 2019.1.

I launched using Run Behavioral Simulation.

The exact message in the Tcl Console is:

FATAL_ERROR: Vivado Simulator kernel has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover. Process will terminate. For technical support on this issue, please open a WebCase with this project attached at http://www.xilinx.com/support.
Time: 0 ns Iteration: 0

Please look at the time and iteration.

I tried uninstalling Vivado 2019.1 and installed Vivado 2017.4.

Using Vivado 2017.4, I could simulate this design source directly

`timescale 1ns / 1ps

module basic_gates(
    input a,
    input b,
    output and_out, or_out, xor_out
    );
    assign and_out = a&b;
    assign or_out = a|b;
    assign xor_out = a^b;
endmodule

But when I tried to simulate the below given design using the testbench(given below), I got the above FATAL_ERROR.

`timescale 1ns / 1ps

module encoder(
    input i0,
    input i1,
    input i2,
    input i3,
    input en,
    output y0,
    output y1
    );
    assign y0 = en & i1 & i3;
    assign y1 = en & i2 & i3;
endmodule

The testbench code is

`timescale 1ns / 1ps

module encoder_tb();
reg I0,I1,I2,I3,EN;
wire Y0,Y1;

encoder uut(I0,I1,I2,I3,EN,Y0,Y1);

initial
begin

I0=0;I1=0;I2=0;I3=1;EN=1; #50;
I0=0;I1=0;I2=1;I3=0;EN=1; #50;
I0=0;I1=1;I2=0;I3=0;EN=1; #50;
I0=1;I1=0;I2=0;I3=0;EN=1; #50;
I0=1;I1=0;I2=0;I3=0;EN=0; #50;

$finish;
end
endmodule

Please help me out.
