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've got the same issue running Orcad 16.5 on a Win 7 machine.
My PATH variable was type REG_SZ and was blank.
I added %CDSROOT%\tools\bin as the value for PATH.
The PATH variable type changed to REG_EXPAND_SZ and Orcad worked.
As an experiment, I changed the value of PATH to a different directory (identical to the setting for TMP). The PATH variable type remained REG_EXPAND_SZ, but Orcad did not work.
So given the fine description of this problem in this thread, and the excellent clues offered by fxffxf and others, and the fact that the first post on this was in July, how come Cadence hasn't fixed it? Don't they monitor this forum????? I'm not a happy camper about this.
