I am getting a Nativelink Error error when trying to run the ModelSim Simulation Quick Strat Guide.

 

Output of PLL_RAM_nativelink_simulation.rpt:

Hi Rurr,

 

May I know what kind of OS and version of Quartus Prime Lite are you using?

 

Thanks,

Regard

Hi Rurr,

 

First make sure you directory for Modelsim is correct.

 Click Tools ➤ Options ➤ EDA Tool Options and specify the following path according to your path of Modelsim.

 

/intelFPGA_lite//modelsim_ase/win32aloem (Lite) • /intelFPGA//modelsim_ase/win32aloem (Standard) 

 

Secondly on the simulation page, do not check the "run gate-level simulation automatically after compliation" otherwise the Modelsim cannot be started.

 

Thanks,

Regards
