Problem:

'dll not found' error for DPSUI.dll when attepting to launch 'Performance Analysis'

Resolution:

This article applies to DevPartner Studio Performance Analysis 7.x version.

Problem: Error: nmstart.exe - Unable To Locate Component.

CONTENT: This application has failed to start because DPSUI.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. Or unable to find DPSUI.DLL in the path:...

Cause: This is because that the install path for this DPSUI.DLL is not in the system path. During the install, DPS tries to add the following path:

[ROOT]:\Program Files\Common Files\Compuware\ MShared;

[ROOT]:\Program Files\Common Files\Compuware\DevPartner Studio\Analysis;

[ROOT]:\Program Files\Common Files\Compuware\DevPartner Studio\Distributed Analyzer;

into system path. If the system path is too long (over Microsoft limitation 1024 characters) or the previous version was not completly uninstalled (using Add/Remove Programs), the next installation may fail to add the above path into system path.

Solution:

Make sure that this DPSUI.dll is registered. Otherwise, register it using regsvr32;

Manually add the above path for NMShared into your system path. Please check other two as well to prevent other potential problems.
