From Tech Note MG550380:
A recent Microsoft patch was released for the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, this Microsoft patch adversely affected the Display Colors dialog in PADS 9.2.
If you are running PADS 9.2 and you are unable to assign a color to an object in Setup > Display Colors please download and install the PADS 9.2 Update 2 patch from:
Installing the 9.2 patch will allow the Display Colors dialog window to function properly again. Even if you already installed the PADS 9.2 Update 2 patch previously you can install it again to correct the Display Colors issue introduced by the Microsoft update.
PADS 9.3 is not affected by the Microsoft C++ patch, as an alternative to installing the PADS 9.2 Update 2 patch, you may choose to upgrade to PADS 9.3 instead:
thank U very much!
