I would like to run a cosimulation but I get the following error:
>> vsim
Error using hdlsim/l_GetModelSimLibInfo (line 527)
Could not find ModelSim executable vsim. Make sure that ModelSim is installed on this
machine and its executables are on the system path.
Error in hdlsim (line 123)
libInfo = l_GetModelSimLibInfo;
Error in vsim (line 110)
so how do I get Modelsim on my windows 10 - Link to download

ModelSim is a third-party HDL simulation environment proprietary to Mentor Graphics. Please contact your company's IT department or the vendor for installation files and instructions:

Hello Michael,
I am sorry to hear that. If you feel that any of our videos give the impression that HDL Verifier toolbox comes with an actual HDL simulator, I am happy to forward this feedback to our Marketing team.
yes please at least for FPGA Hardware you usually get on for free. I guess it should not be a full blown version but enough to run your tutorial / video. Thanks
I see what you are referring to. However, HDL Verifier actually requires a "full" HDL simulator. Free versions like Modelsim-Intel Starter Edition won't work with HDL Verifier since a required interface (FLI) is disabled.
