Encountered a problem running a simulation using the OrCAD Capture software


Until now I used to build a circuit,set up a simulation profile,run the simulation and the probe window will automatically open up allowing me to preform measurments and plot traces.
A few days ago I formatted my PC and reinstalled PSpice,and now when i set up a simulation profile and run the simulation the probe windows doesn't show up automaticaly and furthermore, when I make changes to my circuit and re-run the simulation,it does not react to those changes(Hence showing me measurments and plots based on the original circuit).

If anyone would be able to solve these issused I would be grateful.

Which version you are running? Is this licensed or Lite installation?

I'm running version 17.2-2016 of OrCAD and PSpice Lite on Windows 10 64 bit and do not have the problem regarding profile changes not being reflected in the simulation. However, I have to place my probes on the circuit before running the simulation. (It sounds like you are saying that prior to your reinstallation. you would run the simulation and then place probes. Maybe I just misunderstood that part of your post.)


Since you are running the Lite version, would you consider simply uninstalling and then installing 17.2-2016?
