Why does ModelSim error out when simulating the AN705 reference design in Windows?

Description

Error in macro ...\altera_eth_1g10g_lineside\testbech\Modelsim\testcase1\tb_run.tcl line 21
Couldn't excute "\bin\sed": no such file or directory.

The command “sed” is a Linux command which is not available in Windows.

Workaround/Fix

1) Run the ModelSim simulation in a Linux environment.

2) Alternatively, if simulation in Windows is required, comment out all the lines in tb_run.tcl script that begin with "exec /bin/sed..."
These lines copy the library name and path to filelist.txt, which is not required for simulation.
