# ModelSim Error : “ could not find interpreter ”ScintillaTk“ ”

I have installed ModelSim 10.4 X64, when I want to open a vhd file in editor an error shown in "Transcript" window as : " could not find interpreter "ScintillaTk" "

I searched about that and I found out that this problem occurs when ModelSim installation path have a space character !!

I have installed it in "Program Files" Folder, Now how can I solve this problem without installing it again ?

I have changed the "Path" environment variables value form -path- to -"path"- but the problem not solved ...

• Create a directory junction from somewhere like C:\modelsim\ to C:\Program Files\<modelsim folder>\ and set the path, environment variables, and shortcuts for modelsim to point to that location? – Tom Carpenter Feb 27 '16 at 19:35
• Thank you @TomCarpenter, I think that is better to be as an answer with more explain and images, If you don't time for that, I'm glad to do that. – QMaster Mar 3 '17 at 19:02
• What do you mean "directory junction" – Jonathan May 6 '17 at 2:19

Thanks to Tom Carpenter for his solution I write the answer for others who may have the same problem.

Create a directory junction from somewhere like C:\modelsim\ to C:\Program Files\ (modelsim folder)\ and set the path, environment variables, and shortcuts for modelsim to point to that location? – Tom Carpenter Feb 27 '16 at 19:35

this can be solved by creating directory junction link to modelsim installation folder. you can create link with mklink command in cmd.
mklink /J "Link" "Destination"
e.g. mklink /J "C:\modelsim" "D:\program file\modelsim"
e.g. C:\modelsim\win32pe_edu\modelsim.ex`
