Orcad 16 in Windows 7 64 bit

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I tried to find any infortaion over the cadence website but there is no info about Windows 7 support.

I want to buy some new hardware + windows + cadence licenses but I have no idea what to choose.

here is the description I found on the internet ( http://www.bigbx.com/25326-cadence-spb-orcad-1630000-2009.html )

yes on 7x64, but follow the additional instructions:

  • run as administrator.
  • from cmd line type " setup.exe - nofirewallexceptions"
  • install license manager (follow the instructions above 1-13).
  • after that install the latest hotfix, because orcad is buggy.
  • patch after. (14-19)

Best regards,
