Note

On Windows, the direction of the slash characters separating directories appears to be reversed. You can enter slash characters in either direction but are displayed as / in all cases. This does not affect operation.

On Windows, environment variables are displayed as $MAXxxxx_HOME. You can use this format instead of %MAXxxx_HOME%.

Use this entry to display the settings for application paths:

Simulator Generator Executable

Use the SimGen control to select the path to the SimGen.exe file.

Use the Command arguments control to specify additional command line options. See Appendix C Building System Models in Batch Mode.

Model Debugger Executable

Use the Model Debugger control to select the path to the Model Debugger executable.

Use the Command arguments control to specify additional command line options. See the Model Debugger User Guide.

Note

Previous versions of System Generator used the $MAXCORE_HOME variable to specify the path for both the System Canvas and Model Debugger applications.

The separate path specifications enable using different versions of Model Debugger and provide more flexibility for installing Model Debugger separately from System Canvas.

Model Shell Executable

Use the Model Shell control to select the path to the Model Shell executable.

Use the Command arguments control to specify additional command line options. See the Model Shell User Guide.

Note

Check Run Model Shell asynchronously to enable starting a separate Model Shell instance with its own output window.

Select the Run in Model Shell entry on the Projects menu to start simulation.

Path to Microsoft Visual C++ .NET application ‘devenv.com’

Use the browse controls to select the paths to the Microsoft Visual C++ .NET devenv.com file for either the 2005 or the 2008 versions. This path is used for building the model and for displaying the development environment.

See Project Settings dialog for details on how to specify the compiler to use for different models.

Click Reset to Defaults to reset the application paths. After changing a path, click Apply to save the changes.

Note

The appearance of this dialog is different for the Linux version of System Canvas as shown in Figure 3.35:

If Run Model Shell asynchronously is checked, the following command line is used:

xterm -e <Model Shell Executable> optional_command_arguments_list -m model.so

You can use Host Debugger Command Line to specify command-line options. The default text is:

xterm -e gdb --args %ISIM%

where %ISIM% is a placeholder for the isim_system executable file.
