I have installed Quartus Prime Pro Edition v20.1 and ModelSim.

Refer to the Tutorial ModelSim_GUI_Introduction.pdf attached below, I couldn't find where to open the ModelSim simulator.

May I know which OS platform you are using?

 

You can launch Modelsim Intel FPGA Edition directly by searching it in the window start menu or from the Quartus installation directory e.g. C:\intelFPGA\19.1\modelsim_ae\win32aloem

 

Attach video in the link below for your reference: ModelSim*-Intel FPGA Edition Simulation with Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition

For Linux, you can launch the Modelsim with ./vsim at directory ~/intelFPGA/19.1/modelsim_ase/bin

Thank you for the link, I can open the ModelSim now.

I'm using Windows 8.

 

In that YouTube video, it opened a folder 'mentor' in the project directory. However I don't have this directory.

Glad to know that you are able to open the Modelsim.

The folder will only be generated when you run Tools > Generate Simulator Setup Script for IP, after compiling your project.
