Troubleshoot Simulator Issues
Review this section to troubleshoot simulator problems you might have when attempting to run a simulation.
Windows Compilation or Run Fails
On Windows, simulation might fail at compilation time or run time if you are running from a directory with a very long path. Use the -o compiler option to output your compilation results to a shorter path.
A socket=-11 Error Is Logged to transcript.log
If you receive the following error message, you might be mixing resources from multiple simulators, such as Questa*-Intel FPGA Edition and ModelSim* SE:
Message: "src/hls_cosim_ipc_socket.cpp:202: void IPCSocketMaster::connect(): Assertion `sockfd != -1 && "IPCSocketMaster::connect() call to accept() failed"' failed."
An example of mixing simulator resources is compiling a device with ModelSim* SE and running the host program in Questa*-Intel FPGA Starter Edition.
Compatibility with Questa*-Intel FPGA Starter Edition Software
Questa*-Intel FPGA Starter Edition software has limitations on design size that prevent it from simulating large designs. When trying to launch a simulation using Questa*-Intel FPGA Starter Edition software, you may encounter the following error message:
Error: The simulator's process ended unexpectedly.
Instead, simulate the designs with Questa*-Intel FPGA Edition or ModelSim* SE software.
