Simulation waveform editor of Quartus 19.1 problem

Why in using the "Simulation waveform editor" of Quartus 19.1 gives me that the excutable file of modsim is not found. I don't want to use modelsim, I want to use .vwf files to run the simulation.

Must I install Modelsim also?

Go to Assignments > Setting > EDA Tool Settings, then specify the simulation tool used in your Quartus project. 

By default, it was selected as Modelsim. Do note that you can only select simulator tools supported by Quartus.

What should I select to simulate the (.vwf) files?

You select the simulator (supported by Quartus) that you need to simulate the (.vwf) files.

You may need to set the path to the simulator executables specified in the Quartus tool under Tools > Options >EDA Tool Options

Though, Intel highly recommend to use Modelsim-Intel Edition for use with the Simulation Waveform Editor.
