Hi Riddhi, You're getting this error might be because of invalid filename that you are trying to pass to vlog. Check previous thread with similar issues. https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P00003yyQLWSA2/modelsim-error-vcom7-failed-to-open-design-un... https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P00003yyLk2SAE/error-vcom7-failed-to-open-design-unit-file-i... Thank you.

One of the reasons why the compile fails is because EDA tools such as Quartus/ModelSim/Xilinx cannot handle spaces in the file paths as well as very long path names..

 

You file path has a space in "My Passport" this path is invalid for the tool and it may not be able to read the file.

 

I would suggest you copy the files to another folder in your system and avoid using any spaces in the file name, path etc. Use "_" (underscore) to separate or make meaningful names. Then try compiling the design. It should work.
