    Hi DigitalCreator, your solution worked for me using Windows Vista Business and OrCAD 16.6 with latest patch as of Feb 14, 2013 (yes, this problem STILL exists) 

    Control Panel->System->Advanced button->Environment Variables (Edit: for Vista)

    (select PATH from User variables section)

    click Edit

    Click OK without changing anything-> OK -> OK

    Are there people still having this problem?

     We're running a Windows 7 x64 Lab environment, running Cadence SPB 16.5. We have similar issues, with various DLL files not being found after a system reboot. The above response about opening the PATH variable for editing, changing nothing and selecting OK seems to work for us (also the install config utility seems to fix this too), but only until the system is yet again rebooted.

    Has anyone recieved any insight from Cadence about this?

     Thanks,

     Evan

     We are using a network license with Win7 & XP workstations. Cadence 16.6

    Logins are user level and not administrator (except to install of course).

     Using Larry C's advice.. I went to the "C:\Cadence\SPB_16.5\tools\ConfigUtility\" folder to run the installation_setup_utility.msi utility as a user. It would not run so ran the setup.exe file and stepped through the program and choose CONFIGURE  when asked. (Cleanup won't run as at user level). Finished out the program and all seems well.

     Several reboots and different users later it all seems well.

     

    Hope it helps somebody.
