Modelsim: Fatal: Bad library format, library not compiled with Intel FPGA Edition co

My design is using a Cyclone V, with a NIOS.  

 

I have downloaded and installed the "Intel FPGA Starter" edition of Modelsim. When I try to run a simulation I get this message: 

 

Fatal: Bad library format, library not compiled with Intel FPGA Edition compiler 

 

I thought that the libraries came pre-compiled.  

 

What do I do?
