I just downloaded the trial version of Orcad 17.4. I'm am watching a tutorial to get started with the soft and I have to use the padstack editor.
I use Windows 10. When I click "start" > "Cadence", there is only the "Licence Client Configuration Utility" available and nothing else. So I click an enter my host name with the port. But nothing happens, the padstack editor doesn't show up.
Do you know why ?
Padstack Editor is under the Start menu Cadence PCB Utilities 17.4-2019 not Cadence so give that a try. You could also try typing Padstack Editor in the Type here to search for Windows 10 which should locate the app for you
I don't have Cadence Utilities 17.4-2019 showing up in the Start menu.
There is orcad but no padstack editor in it. When I search for padstack editor in the search menu I find nothing.
Ok looks like the start menus weren't built as part of the installation. You can try using this link
to download the start menu shortcuts. Once downloaded unzip this to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs. The alternative is a full uninstall / reinstall
It worked, thanks a lot Steve.
