Upgrading to PADS9.4: powerpcb.exe - system error - xf_Os.dll is missing

Hi There,


We are having an issue after upgrading one of our computers to PADS9.4 - the first problem we have seen in 4 or 5 computers now. When we go to try to start up the PADS tool after updating we get the following error:


powerpcb.exe - system error - xf_Os.dll is missing from your computer.


Can anyone let me know how to fix this please, or even what it means? It is the first time I am seeing this. I have searched high and low and have been able to find nothing on this issue.


We've run the MGC configurator, I believe that is what it is called, where we select 9.4 as our default version and have followed all the proper steps for install. From what I understand DxDesigner opens fine but we are unable to open the PADS layout tool. However, I am double checking this now.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance for your time
