Why is it now impossible to prevent the loading of the stupid start page. If cadence did any usage tracking they would realise that the page never gets clicked on and always gets closed and yet they force it to load (slowly, usually) each time capture is launched.
Has anybody found a way to disable it - the old capture.ini trick no longer seems to work.
Quoting "Tinkerman" that provided the answer to the same question I had some time ago:
Go to Cadence\SPB_17.4\tools\capture\tclscripts\capAutoLoad and open capOrCADStartPage.tcl
At the beginning change "set spRegEnvOpen true" to "set spRegEnvOpen false.
This is the only working solution for HF007 now.
And this worked for me.
Thanks UlfK. If only they put as much effort into fixing the bugs as launching the start page :-)
