Running Modelsim commands on Linux that is installed on Windows PC.

Hello guys,

I adopted the following procedure to install Linux on Windows 

How to enable Linux on Windows .

 

I have installed modelsim 2020.1 on my windows machine. I want to run commands like vlib and vcom on the Linux shell that I have enabled using some options within Windows(procedure link given above).  I was looking for some help in this regard, as the windows bash shell doesn't seem to be recognizing these commands.

 

I ran the same commands on Cygwin, Windows Powershell, and Windows command line. These three interfaces are recognising Modelsim Batch mode commands. 

 

How may I run my already installed Modelsim that is installed on Windows machine, on the Linux that is also installed on the same Windows machines(After enabling Windows System for Linux)? 

 

Thanks in advance

Hi TRoa,

 

In order to run commands like vlib and vcom on the Linux shell (wsl enabled) for Modelsim that is installed on Windows machine.

 

First, cd to folder bin64 or win32aloem by typing:

cd /mnt/<your_directory>/quartus/bin64 or

cd /mnt/<your_directory>/modelsim_ase/win32aloem

 

Then, execute the command by typing:

vlib.exe or vcom.exe (must include the .exe extension)

 

Best regards,
Sheng
