Has anyone else been experiencing instability in OrCAD 22?
So far the Capture tool has crashed about three times in the last 5 days and the PCB Editor just crashed on me today.
If nobody else is seeing this issue, then perhaps there is an issue related to my system/set up
Yes, I experience OrCAD PCB 22.1 s004 every day several times a day, intervals 20mins - 1 hour. The crash happens during manual trace edits of small double sided and 4-layer boards (when moving segments or some other benign editing operations). The RAM is 20GB, Windows shows 14GB free RAM, so it is not RAM. No other application on this machine crashes. I experienced same behavior of SPB 17.4 on all recent releases on a different computer, and hoped that the problem was fixed with Orcad 22. When PCB editor crashes, it leaves a *.SAV file which contains the latest work, so renaming it to PCB brings back the state immediately before crash. It is annoying, but I continue to struggle because I need the job done. Maybe I am doing too many manual edits. I did not capture the message screen because it quickly disappear, but it says something like "it experienced an internal problem and needs to close".
I think there is S005 available so worth to try.
Can I ask you if orcad create memory dump files? for me it does but they always 0B size.
And please complain to support on every crash. So many people just ignore the crashes so cadence is not doing anything - they just simply not aware about the size of the problem.
