Hi All,
When I try to invoke virtuoso (from Cadence), I run into the following error:
Unable to find libvisadev.so
The above lib is present in <install_dir>/tools.lnx86/bin/lib and <install_dir>/tools.lnx86/bin/lib/64bit.

Please let me know how to debug this.

Thank you.

I'd first look to the searchpath, which should be getting modified
by a startup script. Since there's supplied versions present, I'd guess
"knowing where to look" is the problem.

But you might check versioning too, just in case your system
administrator has already "been trying stuff" but using stale
"stuff" they found.

Thank you for the suggestion.
The issue is resolved.
There was an issue in the PATH env variable, where one of the Cadence tools had corrupted files.
By negating the tools defined in the cshrc, we got to know the actual tool which was causing the issue.

Thank you once again for the hint!
