Then you are going to have to get a hold of your dealer and see what is going on. Could be permissions or missing files or many things and be best to get a hold of your dealer for direct one on one support.

Did you look and see if that file is in the chooks folder

Did you do a default install.. or did you force the install to a different location ???

I would start by answering gcode's questions above.

this may help - taken from the knowledge base section at mastercam.com

 

Problem

The MachSim.DLL C-Hook was not found when launching Mastercam Simulator.

Cause

Mastercam Simulator requires files from the Windows media pack to be present. With the N and KN versions of Windows this package is part of an optional install causing Simulator to not launch. 

Solution

Install the Media Feature Pack provided by Microsoft.
