My university has an OrCAD 16.2 license, and I'm currently working on a high-speed design. Well, trying to work at least. First of all, I can't seem to get the high speed rules set in Capture CIS to be recognized in PCB editor. After some searching, I read that I could use SPECCTRA to write a routing script with all my rules and such.. But I'm getting a weird error in Specctra when I try to load my designs.
"Error in file ... line 1: token 1 = *bunch of weird signs*"
I press ok, then I get:
"Parser: Expected ( or ), saw *weird signs*while parsing first token in design or session files"

At this point I really just need to ask the question: Is it possible to create high-speed designs that follow high-speed rules with OrCAD 16.2 ?
Thanks for your time guys :)
