Couldn't open "transcript": permission denied - I usually ignored this as I always read the transcript in notepad++.
The reason why you cannot open macro file: example.do is most probably your Modelsim directory path is currently not located at /Users/mar1/Desktop/Quartus_PRO_PLL_RAM/mentor - where the example.do file located.
1. Go to File > Change Directory > Browse to the directory path where the example.do file located.
2. type pwd - to confirm the directory path is correct
Modelsim > pwd
3. then do example.do
Modelsim > do example.do
With that, the Modelsim should bring up the simulation.
