Hi,

I am trying to simulate using Questa, and it shows the following error, I am starting it for the first time. 

Could some one tell me why is this happening?

Sourced NativeLink script c:/program files (x86)/intelfpga_lite/22.1std/quartus/common/tcl/internal/nativelink/modelsim.tcl
missing "
Error: NativeLink simulation flow was NOT successful

Hi,


Check this link https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/documentation/oneapi-programming-guide/top/programming-interface/fpga-flow/evaluate-kernel-through-simulation/set-up-the-simulation-environment.html


In Quartus software, go to Tools -> Options -> EDA Tool Options -> Questa Intel FPGA and specify the paths:

<quartus_installdir>/questa_fse/bin (Linux)

<quartus_installdir>\questa_fse\win64 (Windows)


Thanks,

Best Regards,

Sheng
