Quartus II 13.1 and Modelsim-Altera hangs on Windows 10

I run Modelsim-Altera from inside Quartus. Modelsim fires up and seems to run fine.  The transcript file looks ok.  The program just hangs, and I never get it back to the point where I can specify what waves to watch, etc.

 

Any help? I'm not even sure where to look to figure this out!

According to Altera/Intel release notes, v16.0 is the earliest version of Quartus that is officially supported on Windows 10 64b.

So it is not surprising that v13.1 has issues on Windows 10 64b.

I run both v16.0 and v13.0sp1 on Windows 7 64b and either runs just fine with no issues.

Oh, that’s bad, I use a Stratix III and the Altera documentation says Quartus II 13.1 is the latest that supports that chip. Does anyone have any suggestions?

avtually, Quartus 2 13.1 does work ok on Windows 10. I am able to build the code and download I to the chip. So maybe I should just figure out how to download a version of Modelsim that will work, and run it standalone.

 

If if anyone knows of a good tutorial/help for doing these 2 things (how to download and install, and how to configure and run) that would be great.

When I run Modelsim, it seems to start ok. As in the image. But I can't seem to start the simulation. Actually it's probably more accurate to say that I can't STOP the simulation, as it appears to be running. And "Run" in dropdown menu you get when you hit the "Simulate" button is greyed out. When I hit "Break" it doesn't do anything, just keeps on running. When I look in the Task Manager, it says vish.exe is using 65% of the CPU. I tried to issue a break in the "Simulate" menu, but it didn't do anything. I tried to quit, and it won't quit. I have to kill it with the task manager.

 

This is Modelsim 10.1d. (I know this because I can still go into the HELP menu and click on About!) Does anyone know where I can download maybe another version, slightly newer? Maybe that will work.
