Vivado simulate error white spaces in path

Jump to solution

Dear Xilinx Support Team,

 

I cant launch the simulation. The Tcl Console sayes:

 

INFO: [USF-XSim-98] *** Running xsim
   with args "tb_m_imx_sync_dec_behav -key {Behavioral:sim_m_imx_sync_dec:Functional:tb_m_imx_sync_dec} -tclbatch {tb_m_imx_sync_dec.tcl} -view {{E:/Daten/P375 USB3_HD_Kamera_FW/Vivado/FW P375 USB3 Camera/tb_m_imx_sync_dec_behav.wcfg}} -log {simulate.log}"
INFO: [USF-XSim-8] Loading simulator feature
Vivado Simulator 2017.3
Time resolution is 1 ps
ERROR: [Simulator 45-7] No such file 'E:/Daten/P375' in the design.

 

The problem seems to be the white space character in directory path.

 

My Directory looks like:

Vivado_Sim_Error_WhiteSpacePath.JPG

 

Is there anything that I can do besides rename the folder 'P375 USB3_HD_Kamera_FW'?

Hi @xion_pecher

 

Yes, i think you got it correct that problem seems to be the space in the directory path if you are using Linux.  Spaces in directory and file names are supported by the Windows operating system. However, you should avoid using spaces in order to preserve portability of the project or files between the Windows and Linux operating systems.

Refer below link, Appendix B for more information on supported symbols for directory paths:

@xion_pecher,

I don't think so.

 

A year ago I had a problem with the loading or adding to project of WCFG files (something like that). It was recommended to me by a Xilinx employee here in this forum (old thread should exist) to keep all WCFGs under ..\project_name\project_name.sim\sim_1
