I am using orcad pcb designer professional 17.2 but I can't open two boards simultaneously. If one pcb design is open and I try to open another pcb board, I run into license problem and program does not open second design. I think I need to be able to open more board designs simultaneously.
How can I solve the issue?
Thank you in advance for your helps.
With kind regards,
This is how licensing works. One board per license.
If you look in the installation folder (C:\Cadence\SPB_17.2\tools\bin) there is an allegro_free_viewer.exe that will allow you to open as many board files are you like. This is only a viewer though so no changes.
Is it possible selecting some objects in the viewer and then past in the other PCB?
Thank you for your support. I have some annoying problem which is funckey functions are lost if I click on any menu item. If I click to menu tabs or something on visibility, find and options tabs, function keys don^t work anymore. I need to click to the area which is next to green bar under the command window and then funckeys start working again. I need to click that area everytime I make some changes on that visibility, options or find tabs.
Is that a common issue or something wrong with my scripts or env file?
