How To Use ModelSim To Simulate Xilinx Design Files?

I download the ModelSim PE student edition and set it in "Integrated Tools" in Xilinx as the default simulator. But when i draw a correct schematic and press Simulate with Modelsim, ModelSim launches with "No Design Loaded" and only the GUI appears with nothing in it; no inputs no outputs. Please help! How should i configure ModelSim to Simulate Design Files straight from Xilinx ISE?

Thanks

Hi,

 

forgot to mention.. you need to compile the xilinx libraries using "compxlib".

 

once libraries are compiled, you will get a new modelsim.ini file. Now you have to replace the existing modelsim.ini with this new file..
