Verify (Run Design Rule Check) error

I have not used the "Verify" (Run Design Rule Check) in DxDesigner before (well, maybe in a training session years ago), and I was hoping it might help me find a problem I have with a schematic. The designer has some typos in his net names, and it's affectiing connectivity across the sheets. I was hoping the "links" portion of the Verify-DRC might give me a clue on which nets were still a problem. After a little testing, it seems that any test/check I try to run gives me the following error in the DRC tab of the output windown:


0 Error(s), 0 Warning(s), 0 Note(s),
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "hdlutils.ini"


Is this just an option we don't have, or is it something that didn't get installed correctly? I went to another designer, and we tried it on his, and got the same results. I did a search on that filename on SupportNet, but no hits on that.


Any ideas?
