    Orcad 16.2 - Create netlist error "CAP[0020]" Reply

    Hi,

     I recently upgraded both computer,os and orcad.  I am currently running Win 7-

    Orcad 16.2.  Everything seems fine except for the creating a net list. The window

    flags me with

    " [CAP0020]
    Unable to open netlist format file:netlist.dll"

    I do see this .dll with the rest of the .dll files. 

    Please point me in the right direction..


    Thanks


    Strickland

    With Windows 7 you will need to RMB on the capture.exe and "run as administrator" open your design and create a netlist. You only need to do this once to get the dll's registered. Offically 16.2 is not supported on Windows 7. You would need to get 16.3 Hotfix 5 to be supported.
