Depending on your Operating system, you may see this message when opening one of our CAD programs:

"Loadlibrary failed with error 1114: A Dynamic link library dll initialization routine failed."

 

Cause:

This issue occurs on Windows laptops with AMD or NVIDIA graphics card, when the performance setting for the application in the graphic card's software is set to Optimize Graphics Performance.

 

Solution:

In your graphics card's software settings, change the graphics setting for Icad or MSEmbed to 'High Performance'.

You can find them in these locations on your computers:

C:\Program Files\MicroSurvey\embeddedCAD (year)\MSEmbed.exe

C:\Program Files\MicroSurvey\MSCAD(year)\Icad.exe

 

AMD graphics card

  1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose the AMD Catalyst Control Center
  2. Under Power, select Configure Switchable Graphics for Applications
  3. Click Add Application, add Icad or MSEmbed to the list of applications, and then choose High Performance instead of Power Saving.

 

NVIDIA graphics card

  1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose the NVIDIA control panel.
  2. Click Manage 3D Settings.
  3. Click Program Settings and add Icad or MSEmbed. Change the preferred graphics processor to High-performance NVIDIA processor.

 

This solution was thanks to an article that Adobe wrote for their Lightroom program. You can view it here.
