Vivado 2018.3 compiled simulation libraries have -novopt option which is deprecated by Modelsim - sim fails

Jump to solution

Is there a solution to this problem? It appears that the -novopt option was a workaround since Vivado 2012 but can no longer be used even if the error is suppressed:

 

# Loading top_lib.clk_block(behavioral)
# Refreshing D:/mod200x_2018.3/2018.3/mod200X/top/sim/mod200Xacm/mod200Xacm_sim.sim/sim_1/behav/modelsim/modelsim_lib/msim/xil_defaultlib.clk_wiz_0
# ** Error (suppressible): (vlog-12110) The -novopt option has no effect on this product. -novopt option is now deprecated and will be removed in future releases.
# ** Error: vlog failed.
# ** Error: subinvocation of vlog failed; return status = 1.
# ** Error: (vsim-3171) Could not find machine code for 'D:/mod200x_2018.3/2018.3/mod200X/top/sim/mod200Xacm/mod200Xacm_sim.sim/sim_1/behav/modelsim/modelsim_lib/msim/xil_defaultlib.clk_wiz_0'.
# No such file or directory. (errno = ENOENT)
# Load interrupted
# Error loading design
# Error: Error loading design

I have put "suppress = 8780,12110 ;an explanation can be had by running: verror 8780 " in the ini file but it does not clear the error.

I'm trying to use modelsim DE

Thanks

Hi @grbespbr ,

Which version of Modelsim are you using with Vivado 2018.3? The compatible version is Modelsim 10.6c. Hence can you please make sure that you have compiled the simulation libraries using this version of tool successfully.

Thanks for your answer. I seem to be playing version tag. The PE/DE version of modelsim I could get for evaluation is 2019.1, and Vivado 2014.1 was too old so I upgraded vivado to 2018.3, but now the modelsim version is too new.

Is there a workaround?

Thanks
