Thread Subject:
Matlab 64-bit and Modelsim 32-bit co-simulation (EDA Simlulator Link))

Subject: Matlab 64-bit and Modelsim 32-bit co-simulation (EDA Simlulator Link))

Hello,

I'm trying to run a co-simulation on my Windows 7 64-bit system.

I've installed the 64-bit version of Matlab (R2010b) and the 32-bit version of Modelsim, because there ist no 64-bit version for windows. Each alone works great, but now I want to use the EDA Simulator Link and it does not work.

When I start "vsim" in the command window I get an error. I traced it back and I think it has something to do with the use of libraries (32bit vs 64bit), but I don't now what exactly.

How can I make this work? Is it even possible?

Andreas

Can you post the error message you got in MATLAB?

EDA Simulator Link supports 32bit ModelSim in 64-bit MATLAB. What is your
ModelSim version? Maybe you need to check if your ModelSim version is
officially supported by EDA Simulator Link in R2010b.

Thanks,
Tao

Hello,

the error message was:

>> vsim
Both launcher " modelsim -noautoldlibpath -gui -do "do {D:/svn/whd/code/simulink/2_energy_dispersal/compile_and_launch.tcl}"" and " questasim -noautoldlibpath -gui -do "do {D:/svn/whd/code/simulink/2_energy_dispersal/compile_and_launch.tcl}"" failed with non-zero status!
If the problem is that it is not on the system path,
please use parameter 'hdlsimdir' to specify its location

??? Error using ==> hdlsim at 283
Der Befehl "questasim" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
konnte nicht gefunden werden.

Error in ==> vsim at 101
hdlsim(pvpairs{:});



But you were right, I used the Modelsim version 6.6d, which is not supported. Now I'm using Modelsim 6.5e and it works fine. Thank's a lot.

Andreas
