          Please try this fix from Tech Note MG68460:

           

           

          Close out All PADS tools. (this procedure will fail if PADS is still open)

          Open the registry editor by running the "regedit.exe" command.

          1. Start>Run
          2. Type regedit in the Open box
          3. Click OK

          Within Registry Editor:

          1. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mentor Graphics\<version>\PADS Layout (or PADS Logic folder)
          2. Right mouse click (on PADS Layout or PADS Logic folder) and select "rename" (this creates a back up version in case something goes wrong, this copy can be deleted after verifying issue was corrected).
          3. Right mouse click (on PADS Layout or PADS Logic folder) and select "delete"
          4. Exit the Registry Editor
          5. Open Layout/Logic (Should open as normal)

          Note: Delete existing PADS entries in this registry location is safe because, PADS will re-build these entries using default values next time it runs.
