AR# 9110: 3.1i Foundation ISE: Error in Modelsim: Could not find work.testbench
3.1i Foundation ISE: Error in Modelsim: Could not find work.testbench
Keywords: MTI, error, testbench
General Description: When starting a simulation from a test bench, Project Navigator starts the simulation using the following command line:
vsim -L <library_name> work.testbench
where testbench is the top level entity name. If your entity name is not testbench, MTI issues the error:
Error: Could not find work.testbench Error loading design
The name of the top most entity can be changed in Project Navigator by selecting the test bench source file, then right clicking on the simulation process. This opens the Process Properties dialog where you can change the "Design Unit Name" to match your top most entity name.
