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?
I had the problem again today.....and 3 reboots wasn't enough to make it run. Its odd....I've been running this successfully every day since the last posting.
Todd, your advice paid off even more soundly this time. My path already contained "%CDSROOT%\tools\bin" with a separate environment variable CDSROOT set to: "C:\Cadence\SPB_16.5" This was set up automatically by the OrCad install 1 month ago. I didn't change it. This sort of arrangment usually works well on Linux systems. However, my guess here is that the order in which Windows XP sets the environment variables may not be completely consistent each time it boots up. If the CDSROOT env variable doesn't get set before the path is set then the path will be wrong..... I added the path to the dll file explicitly as you suggested (without the embedded CDSROOT ) and it works....for now at least. I'll update if this changes.
