it first says : Starting: 'DxDesigner', PID: nnnn.
then a second later it says: Stopping: 'ExDesigner', PID: nnnn.
How to fix this?
Do you see the same behaviour when you invoke DxDesigner from the Start>All Programs>Mentor Graphics SDD>Design Entry or does it only occur from the Dashboard? I would also check if you have valid license.
You might also check drive mappings for the software install.
Is there a reason to use the dashboard? The normal method to launch DxDesigner is to launch directly os Olivier explained and not through the Dashboard.
