    Hi everyone,

    I'm (trying) using Orcad PCB 386 V4.42 on windows 2000. But, it
    doesn't work. I have a BATCH file for configuring Orcad's environment
    variables. When I try to run that Batch, screen is getting black.

    Also, I try to set environment variables within windows's environment
    variables section. But result isn't change.

    Does anyone can help me?




    Note:
    My system is Pentium III 933 Mhz, windows 2000, 128 Mb ram, 20 gb
    fat32 HDD, 32 Mb TNT video card.

    Try asking I have seen it run on Win2000.
    4.42 is the ESP version. What is the PCB386+ version? The latest is 2.22
    before the shelved it. It is one of the bigger mistakes the made.

  3. What video driver are you using? Have you tried an ATI card?

    he must be refering to Install V4.42. We have PCB386+ running on NT4
    rw

    There is a basic problem when you install Orcad PCB on any windows 95
    and up system. The routines that Microsloth uses to return basic bits
    of information about the environment, don't work correctly.

    Orcad's generated install batch file ends up just full of constructs
    like:

    IF NOT %C:\ORCADESP\. == C:\ORCADESP\. Goto ENVERR

    and

    IF NOT . == FALSE. Goto ENVERR


    As a result, your install program will fail miserably. You will have
    to do everything by hand, or boot an old version 6 MSDOS, and do the
    install from there.
