I'm a complete newbie to this. I'm trying to get the waveform simulator to run (Run Functional Simulation), but I get the above message. Help please! Thank you.

Hi Joseph,


In the waveform editor, Simulation -> Simulation Settings -> Restore Defaults. Then rerun the simulation. Let me know if it works.
