Users can compile Active-HDL libraries within the Intel Quartus environment using a compiler wizard. For the purpose of this application note, we have used the version of Intel Quartus 16.1 and provided the path to Active-HDL 10.3.
Open Intel Quartus 16.1.
Go to Tools | Launch Simulation Library Compiler.
