MAX10 fiftyfivenm Gate level Simulation ** Error: (vsim-3033) and no timing simulation.

New Contributor I


I'm using Quartus 20.1.  I have a design which I wish to inspect and verify the gate level simulation.  I have no trouble with a CycloneIV FPGA, but with Max10, once modelsim starts up, it gives me this error:

Is there something I am missing?  The FPGA does compile and it does RTL simulate.
