I have a problem with Orcad CIS loading on windows7. When I try to start the program it takes several minutes (approx 10 minutes) before I even see the splash screen for Capture. After it loads everything seems OK. We are using a network license server as the key. Everyone that is using Windows XP sees Orcad start normally while everyone using windows7 or windows8 have this long delay before Capture starts.
Any help would be appreciated.
Check that you have not been "gifted" a "Client Install" of the products. Delays like this are typical of client installations since the bulk of the product software components are loaded and initialized from the network, rather than the local hard drive. Product start, not just getting to the spash screen, should be of the order of 20 seconds, or so, with a local SSD installation and a remote license, possibly double that with a local mechanical hard drive installation and decent hardware, typically less than a minute in any case.
We have 2 identical machines, both Win 7 64b. One works normally, the other as described above.
Of course the files are installed locally. The license server is on the network.
It seems like after first installing v16.6 it will only work after also installing 16.2?
