Simulation Profiles not displaying in Orcard Capture CIS Lite

I have loaded Orcad Lite on a 64 Win 7 machine and a 64 bit Win 10 machine.  Version 17.2-2016 S016 (V17-2-50BH) (3/20/2017) Windows SPB 64 Bit Edition QIR 3 ISR 016

On both machines, in OrCAD Capture CIS - Lite if I select PSPICE - New Simulation Profile.  Give it a name and Inherit from None - it creates the simulation profile and that shows in the simulation profiles in the project manager.  But the Simulations Settings window is blank - totally white space with a boarder.  Editing a Simulation Settings does the same thing.

I have created a project and also used one on the projects supplied.

No spaces in paths for installation or the projects.

 

Where to from here?

I bought the non light version and installed this in place of the lite version.  It had exactly the same problem.

I got it to work by unistalling all and reinstalling but this time not selecting "Setup for all users"

This seems to have fixed the problem - except that only one user on the computer can use it now.

Hi I have the same problem, as seen here my OrCad Lite 17.2 on a Windows 10 machine appears to have a blank Simulation Setting screen:

What should I click for the setting here for the OrCad Lite installation here?

 

 

I believe I did only for me the last time as well.

 

Thank You

I reinstalled with "Only for Me" and that worked - by that time I had moved to the paid distribution though.

So the score rate is

Lite 3 all user installs - all failed (2 machines Win 7 & Win 10)

Paid one all user - failed

Paid one Only For Me - worked.

I am not bothered to go back and try again with all users to see if it fails.  But I can imagine the problem is that the process trying to display the page has not inherritted the correct permisions to access the file.  I note also there is a control parameter that puts the display method for simulation profiles back to an earlier version - can nto remember the details and did not explore.

Maybe Cadence could offer some guidance - now that my experience is not a single random report.

Thank you for replying, I have too tried both of them and have gotten no where. I will call Cadence and hopefully they can resolve the issue. I will post the solution here if I find it.

ALOK FIXED IT!!!!!!!!

 

Open orCefSettings.ini file from < Installation Path>/tools/bin/ in any text editor like notepad. For example - C:\Cadence\SPB_17.2\tools\bin\orCefSettings.ini

 

Append below line in this file (orCefSettings.ini file)

                             

               lang=en-US

 

Save this file and exit all OrCAD tools and relaunch. Try opening SimSetup dialog and see if this works.

 

After this change, orCefSetting.ini file should look as following.

This issue is being addressed by Cadence and it should be available in upcoming Hotfix release.
