New here and fairly new to OrCAD, currently studying on an Embedded Systems degree and we have been supplied Orcad 16.5 under a student license.
I am reasonably comfortable with building a circuit and running various simulations using components from the pspice library. And have got to a stage where I need to build a PCB, using the components that have come with OrCAD in the pspice library.
But I get a host of errors when I try to creat a netlist i.e. ERROR(ORCAP-36071): Illegal character "Forward Slash" etc. I can see clearly what the error is by looking in the terminal window, and am able to navigate to the componets Foot print value.
I have the circuit open in OrCAD Capture CIS, click on the .dsn file and then go to the tools menu and select Creat Netlist, then I tick the box Open Board in OrCAD PCB Editor.
Quite confused at this stage and have the following questions related to this:
1) Are there any library components supplied with Orcad that come with PCB Footprints that do not have this issue, or is this an error I am likely to get with certain libraries within OrCAD?
2) How can I identify what the valid footprint should be? (I know this is dependant on the component I use and relates to Question 3 I guess)
3) Is there a way I can preview all footprints so I can build a list up of known good ones for my circuits, then just copy paste from here to each component?

Thank you very much for the information very useful.
