MXE 6.4b vcom errors compiling EDK 11.1 and 10.1.3 simulation libraries

ModelSim XE 6.3c and ModelSim XE 6.4b both have the same problems compiling EDK simulation libraries, both 10.1.3 and 11.1. Loading the simulation, MXE prints the following in the transcript:

 

# Refreshing E:\tools\Modeltech_xe_starter\xilinx\edk\microblaze_v7_20_a.microblaze_types(body) # ** Error: ./hdl/vhdl/microblaze_types_pkg_body.vhd: This version of the compiler is inco

# Refreshing E:\tools\Modeltech_xe_starter\xilinx\edk\microblaze_v7_20_a.microblaze_types(body)

The compile log contains the following:

The .cmd batch file in that location has odd looking path separators, with both '\' and '/'  as below, but this apparently is not the problem, since vcom appeared to run as printed in the log.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Mike.

Re: MXE 6.4b vcom errors compiling EDK 11.1 and 10.1.3 simulation libraries

Some additional information. All errors appear to be in licensed cores. There was a total of 16 errors while compiling the EDK libraries. I won't swear to it, but I recall simulating 10.1.sp3 EDK designs using MXE 6.3c Starter. Is there something basic I'm missing that it doesn't/no longer works?

Re: MXE 6.4b vcom errors compiling EDK 11.1 and 10.1.3 simulation libraries

Hi,

 

MXE is not supported with EDK libraries. I am nto sure how you got this to work in the previous version as these libraries are not marked with MXE and thus you cannot use it without the line-count coming into effect.

 

Also you cannot mix and match versions of libraries, in that you cannot use 10.1.3 libraries with the 11.1 version of the SW. You will need to  ensure that the two are the same.

 

Please see the following AR for more information:

Thanks

Duth

Actually, your response had more useful, relevant information than the AR. Thanks.
