ppar is undefined or is used recursively

I installed the TSMC 0.35um CM Process design kit in my unix system.
When I run the simulation in the analog envirnment in Cadence Virtuoso, I always got the error message so I can not use that at all. I am not sure this error is originally design kit error or cadence error/

Do you know what this error message means?
Please help me the comment for me. Thanks

I get the same kind of error!
Function pPAR in (XYZ) instance is undfnd or used recursively!

However, it works after some time ...

i use IC.5.1.41

Added after 4 minutes:

Error found by spectre in `inv1', during circuit read-in.
"input.scs" 15: Function `pPar' is undefined or is used recursively.
"input.scs" 16: Function `pPar' is undefined or is used recursively.

I never used recursively at all. I can not simulate at all.

How do you fix the problem ?
