You can use the 3rd Party Simulators settings to specify install paths and default compiled library paths. To open the Settings dialog box (shown in the previous figure), select Tools > Settings, and then click the 3rd Party Simulators category.

Install Paths
Specifies the path to a third-party simulator.
GCC Instal Paths

Specifies the directory to locate GCC installation for each supported Simulator. This option is required if you want to use the GCC path rather than the path specified in the tool installation.

Default Compiled Library Paths
Specifies the path to the compiled libraries for each supported simulator. The compiled library path is only applied when you create a new project.
Note: For more information on third-party simulators, see this link in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Logic Simulation (UG900).
