I'm using Quartus 16.1I want to simulate, but when I press Run functional simulation this error occur " Warning (18236): Number of processors has not been specified which may cause overloading on shared machines. Set the global assignment NUM_PARALLEL_PROCESSORS in your QSF to an appropriate value for best performance. Error (199014): Vector source file C:/Users/myusername/Desktop/veri/Waveform1.vwf specified with --testbench_vector_input_file option does not exist Error: Quartus Prime EDA Netlist Writer was unsuccessful. 1 error, 1 warning Error: Peak virtual memory: 471 megabytes Error: Processing ended: Fri Dec 30 22:56:30 2016 Error: Elapsed time: 00:00:01 Error: Total CPU time (on all processors): 00:00:01 Error.

You need to do these five things for Quartus simulation;1) Tell Quartus to use ModelSim-Altera for the simulation tools (Assignments - EDA Tool Settings - Simulation). 2) Tell Quartus to generate a netlist for functional simulation (Assignments - EDA Tool Settings - Simulation - More EDA Netlist Writer Settings - Generate Functional Simulation Netlist - ON). 3) Tell Quartus to use VHDL for the simulation netlist (Assignments - EDA Tool Settings - Simulation - Format for Output Netlist - VHDL) 4) Tell Quartus where to put the simulation netlist (Assignments - EDA Tool Settings - Simulation - Output Directory). This is usually the "simulation" folder. 5) Tell the simulator (in the simulation waveform editor) to use VHDL for the netlist language (Simulation - Simulation Settings - Use VHDL). Good Luck.
Hi,I'm total beginner and have exactly same problem as described above. I downloaded Quartus Prime (includes Nios II EDS) (http://dl.altera.com/?edition=lite&platform=windows&version_number=16.1&dlm3_download=1&dlm3_contain...). It installed to C:\intelFPGA_lite\16.1 I created project and then wanted to do some simulation. As described in this document ftp://ftp.altera.com/up/pub/altera_material/16.1/tutorials/vhdl/quartus_ii_simulation.pdf one have to create University Program VWF. When I clicked Run Functional Simulation I got "ModelSim executable not found." error. I downloaded ModelSim-Intel FPGA Edition (includes Starter Edition) (http://dl.altera.com/?edition=lite&platform=windows&version_number=16.1&dlm3_download=1&dlm3_contain...). It installed to C:\intelFPGA\16.1. In Quartus Prime Lite Edition I manually set Tools -> Options -> General -> EDA Tool Options ->ModelSim to C:\intelFPGA\16.1\modelsim_ase\win32aloem (I'm not sure whether the path is right, as I found no tutorial or manual where this is described) In Simulation Waveform Editor I clicked Run Functional Simulation and I got Error (199014) (as described above). I did all settings as described by gj_leeson, but the error persists. Can you please help?

Hi, i´m starting with Quartus and find the same problem. The "solution" that i´ve found is not change the name of the .vwf file. When the name is the default one, "waveform.vwf", I have no problem. If I change it, i got trouble.
I also had this problem and it looks like I found an easy workaround:
a) Remove bad wave form file;
b) Clean and rebuild project
c) Create new Waveform.vwf but save it in the project root (not output_files).
d)Press "Generate Modelsim..."
For some reason in my case the vwf file was created in output_files until I forced it to be at the right place. And I also followed the advice to declare path to ModelSim
