Problem in Process corner simulation using Cadence ADXL tool.

My question is related to CADENCE software simulation.
I am doing a process corner simulation of a simple inverter using ADXL in CADENCE. But the problems are:

1_ When I run only the nominal corner it simulates successfully as shown in the figure.

2-But when I add worse power /worse speed corner scenario for CMOS then individually it runs, however when I combine different corners (e.g. nominal, wort power, and worst speed scenarios) then it not simulating and showing a pending option [attached]. Moreover in remarks, it shows the following message:

net /Vin selected but not highlighted
net /Vout selected but not highlighted

To make it simple, individual corner simulation runs successfully but it does not simulate in the case of combined process corners. And I would like to simulate all the corners simultaneously so that I can compare my simulation result under different scenarios.

Can anyone have faced a similar problem or suggest to me possible ways to solve it?
