    Cannot create netlist, CIS 16.3, Win7 Reply

    My work group runs OrCAD with success, and I have also. But my installation stopped producing netlists. Symptoms are:

    Create Netlist

    Netlist files directory value is not persistent -- I have to re-enter it.

    Same for location of allegro.cfg.

     Press OK, system is busy for about a second, and then nothing. System log remains blank. No files created.

     I run as administrator. Several reinstalls have not fixed it. All my settings are same as other people in work group who can run netlists. I experiment with same proven DSN files.

    I am quite flummoxed. Perhaps there are obscure registry entries affecting me? Do I need to rebuild my Win7 system?

    Thanks.

    Try and see if it fixes your issue - Do not execute the tool as Adminstrator. Windows 7 UAC restricts Administrator from certain processes.
