    Hi,

    I try to simulate a post-fit model using 'ModelSim XE III'.
    But I get the following error:

    # Loading C:\Programme\Modeltech_xe_starter\win32xoem/../vital2000.vital_primitives(body)
    # Loading C:\Programme\Modeltech_xe_starter\win32xoem/../xilinx/vhdl/simprim.vpackage(body)
    # Loading work.u14(structure)
    # ** Failure: (vsim-3808) Incompatible modes for port csadc
    # Time: 0 ps Iteration: 0 Instance: /testbench/dut File: netgen/fit/U14_timesim.vhd Line: 52
    # Loading C:\Programme\Modeltech_xe_starter\win32xoem/../xilinx/vhdl/simprim.x_buf(x_buf_v)
    # Fatal error at C:/Xilinx/vhdl/src/simprims/simprim_VITAL_mti.vhd line 1643
    # while elaborating region: /testbench/dut/fsrio_2
    # Load interrupted
    # Error loading design
    # Error: Error loading design
    # Pausing macro execution
    # MACRO ./testbench.tdo PAUSED at line 8

    Seems to be a wrong path used by Modelsim.
    I installed the Xilinx ISE tool to C:\Programme\Xilinx.
    But wherever i search for, there is no system variable 'C:\Xilinx' as seen in the error message.

    Looking in the Library tab of the workspace window, library 'aim' uses path $MODEL_TECH/...
    But looking inside of this library, entity 'aim_add_sub_10' uses path 'C:\Xilinx\vhdl\src\iSE\abel\aim.vhd'.
    Do I have to recompile the libraries somehow? Or should I better reinstall Xilinx ISE?

    Hmm, this must be some other problem.
    I reinstalled Xilinx ISE to C:\Xilinx and get the same error message.
    Looking at the line with the fatal error doesn't help me any further:
    I_ipd_reg := To_X01(I_ipd);
