I've just been given a computer at work for use with OrCAD 16.6 (PSpice in particular). The OS is Win XP 64 bit (XP Pro x64 V2003 SP2).
Is this a complete non-starter?! I've read that OrCAD does not support XP 64.
I'd be grateful if someone could advise me whether I need to reinstall with XP 32 bit.
Yes, for Windows XP you need to install 32bit OS, or if feasible, you may want to consider Windows 7, 64bit.
Thank you for your replies :)
I've found that OrCAD and PSpice appear to run fine on my XP 64 bit PC.
I created a simple RLC circuit and ran an AC analysis.
I understand that XP 64 is not supported though, and I may find features that don't work in XP 64, in which case I'll ask the computer department to install XP 32.
