Hello guys, I really appreciate any help with this simulation error.I am working with IC615.509 and MMSIM 11.10.341
I am trying to run a phase noise simulation via "transient noise" and I am
having this error when trying to simulate. Basically, after I set up the
testbench (ADEGXL), spectre uses a plugin for calling some binary libs of the
PLL-testbench. Doing so, spectre calls the 32 bit version of the libs instead of
the 64 bit one, which are curiosly located at the same path but in the 64bit
My question is: How should I set up my testbench to pick the right version of
PD: Some ways to deal with this problems (not the best for sure) are:
1) Create links for the 64bit libraries inside the 32bits directory.
2) Running spectre from command line but editing the "plugin sentence" to point at the right libraries.

This sort of question is best handled by contacting Cadence Customer Support (http://support.cadence.com).
I'm not sure if you are running into a bug ... or if it's a setup issue. It *may* be related to a known bug CCR that I found in our system.

In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Hi Andrew. Thanks for you reply.
I tried both via CDS_AUTO_64BIT=ALL and activating the 64bit option in the menu "Enviroment" in ADEGXL, but it didn't work.
The subversion is: IC6.1.5-64b.500.9
I was thinking in a way to add or edit the parameters/options passed to spectre (runSimulation) from ADE. In that way I could eventually re-write the path to the libs. But I dont know if that is possible.
