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

Environment

  • Stratix® V FPGAs
  • Stratix® V GX FPGA
  • Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition
  • Ethernet 10G MAC Intel® FPGA IP
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT

    Critical Issue

    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.

    Resolution

    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.
