[Quartus & Modelsim-Altera] simulation of altera's megafunction components

I have generated a pll using the Quartus IP-Core. 

 

I have created a simple testbench which includes the pll. 

The project top compiles successfully, However when I launch the RTL simulation tool(Modelsim-Altera) 

the modelsim raise an error  

alt_pll.v(67): Instantiation of 'altpll' failed. The design unit was not found  

 

At the library panel I can see the library called "altera_mf"  

But it seems like modelsim search for libraries only in rtl_work library and not in the pre-compiled libraries of modelsim-altera. 

 

How to set modelsim to load the precompiled libraries ? 

 

Thanks

Try adding following to your vsim command "-L altera_mf" or use the Native link simulation to setup simulation
