Did you know that you can download and install all available Cadence® Allegro® and OrCAD® product releases and updates on Windows in an easy way using Cadence Download Manager? Yes, no more visiting the Cadence Downloads page to check for updates. What’s more, you can even schedule regular downloads and installs as per your convenience. Cadence Download Manager is independent of the releases and updates itself automatically whenever a new version is available.
Cadence Download Manager lists all the releases and add-on products that are available for installation. You can check the current status of a release from the Status column; Get indicates that the product is not installed, Update indicates an updated version is available, and Up to Date indicates that the latest version of the product is installed. So, you click Get or Update and you're done! Well, it seems that's all about this post. But wait, Download Manager gives you a lot more than that.
To download and install a new release, click Get. Or, select a release from the Package Name list and click Install from the Install drop-down button. Or, if you want to only download a release, click Download.
Schedule it and forget it…A built-in scheduler allows you to schedule automatic updates. Set the exact time and days of the week, from the Updates tab, on which you want the updates to be installed or downloaded. You can also specify the packages you want to download or install from the Packages section.
Distributing software to all machines on a network can be a tough task for IT administrators. Cadence Download Manager can make this task easy for you. It allows you to easily manage a local cache where all releases and updates can be stored for deployment and distribution across an enterprise.
