Has anyone else seen this error? We installed Orcad V16.3, including the hotfix, yesterday, and it was working just fine. I came in today and tried to launchOrcad Capture CIS, I get the following error window:
This application has failed to start because cdn_sfl401as.dll was not found. Re-Installing the application may fix this problem. I don't want to re-install every day!! Any ideas out there?
Thanks for the post and the workaround. It was helpful. I think you left out one step in your instructions. It shoud be:
control panel-> system -> click on the Advanced tab-> then click on Environment Variables
Anyway, in my case, I have the same OS and OrCad version as you...and the same problem after 3 weeks of successful operation. In my case, following your instructions, I confirmed the path to the dll was already in my search path. The path was there, yet windows couldn't find the file. In the end, I rebooted and it started working again.
