This problem occurs if the OSIM Plugin related registry entry, ITRMOSIM, is missing from the windows registry under HKLM\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\EGC3.0N\Plugins\

Figure 3

To resolve the problem:

1. Go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\EGC3.0N\Plugins\

2. Create a key with the name ITRMOSIM

  • Under ITRMOSIM, create a new 'String' and Rename the string to PluginDll and set the path as \CA\DSM\bin\gui_osim.dll

    • Example: If DSM is installed under C:\Program Files, then the complete path would be 'C:\Program Files\CA\DSM\bin\gui_osim.dll

      Figure 4
  • Under ITRMOSIM create a sub key named Locale.
  • Under Locale, create 4 sub keys titled 'DE', 'EN', 'FR' and 'JPN' as shown below

    Figure 5

  • Under each of these sub keys, create four strings as shown below
  • DE

  • EN
