    *Error* Could not find source, vdc, in analogLib.

    I am having the same problem except instead of vdc, it is vbit and vpulse. I am trying to figure it out as well, have you found a solution?

    ***Before changing your cds.lib file it is better to back it up (using cp command)*** 

     

    Finally, fixed it! I had to go to my cds.lib file and enter: DEFINE analogLib $CDSHOME/etc/cdslib/artist/analogLib

     

    For you the environment variable $CDSHOME might be different.

    To check what it is first type: env | grep CDS

     

    Check which variable points to the directory /dfII and that will be your variable. Just replace that instead of $CDSHOME.
