Hi all,

I need to use Simulink with altera modelsim v6.6c. But when I use command **vsim('socketsimulink', 4449)**, I get errors below

??? SWITCH expression must be a scalar or string constant.

Error in ==> hdlsim>l_GetModelSimLibInfo at 549 switch (lfmVer)

Error in ==> hdlsim at 113 case 'ModelSim', libInfo = l_GetModelSimLibInfo;

Error in ==> vsim at 101 hdlsim(pvpairs{:});

How can I fix this error? I use Matlab R2010a

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards!

I think Walter's answer is probably the solution. Check the document.

vsim('socketsimulink', '4449')

That is, the socket information must be supplied as a string.

What is the output of this command when you run it in MATLAB:

[s, fullver] = system('vsim -version')
