General suggestions when you get this type of error are:
1) You might need to re-install the Microsoft libraries manually. In the ...\9.5PADS\win32 folder, try installing any vcr... executables.
2) Run the configurator with the -clean switch, then check if you still have any SDD_HOME / MGC_HOME variables set. If so remove them before running the configurator again.
3) If you have the SDD_USELOCAL_ENV variable set, unset it, and re-run the configurator.
4) Uninstall PADS completely and re-install after a reboot.
If none of these work, you will need to raise a service request via Supportnet.
Thank you for the response.
A couple of stupid questions:
1)How do I run the configurator with the -clean switch?
a)Just "configurator.exe - clean"?
2)How do I check if I have any SDD_HOME / MGC_HOME or the SDD_USELOCAL_ENV variables set?
a)Just through the advance system settings environment variables and delete anything SDD correct?
I have been uninstalling PADS completely but not after a reboot. I will try this.
