I've seen that happen when the license file can't be located. -- Mike Treseler
i had a simular problem with version 5.7 and i solved it removing the file 
vsim.wlf (located in my working directory) before running modelsim.

hope this help.

I just tried and it doesn't work
I checked up licence file with "diagnose" tool, licence is ok and 
environment variable is ok too

Try "vsim -c" in a DOS box or Cygwin shell and see if you get any error 
messages. Use the "lmutil lmdiag" and "set" command to see if your license 
file is OK and your LM_LICENSE_FILE variable is pointing to your license 
file. Also make sure you don't have any expired features/increment lines in 
your file.

I used to have this problem, but it went away after installing XP SP2.
