Modelsim can't find design units

Hi, I am a Modelsim novice, so I might be missing something obvious.

I compiled my design in Quartus, and opened Modelsim through the Quartus software.

In Modelsim, compiled a few other needed libraries.

But I still get some (vsim-3033) errors, saying: "Instantiation of 'cyclonev_clkena_encrypted' failed. The design unit was not found."

This repeats for units cyclonev_pll_refclk_select_encrypted,  cyclonev_fractional_pll_encrypted,  cyclonev_pll_reconfig_encrypted, and cyclonev_pll_output_counter_encrypted. 

 

I am nor sure where else to find them, I feel like I am searching in the dark. I feels odd that all the necessary things aren't precompiled when I open it through Quartus, but I can deal with that.

Does anyone know where I can find these last things to compile in my simulation?

Hi Adam,


May I know what version of Quartus are you using? Is the Modelsim come from same package of the Quartus version? If you are using different version of modelsim into Quartus, this will cause an issue as this issue https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-Quartus-Prime-Software/Questa-lpm-CycloneV-library-not-found/m-p/1426223#M75842, this make sure the simulation tool and Quartus is compatible

Yes, Quartus and ModelSim were downloaded together in the same package.

Quartus is Quartus Prime 18.1 Build 625, and ModelSim is Starter Edition 10.5b
