    OrCad Layout on Windows 7 ? Reply

     I have some older OrCad Layout designs I need to support.

     Has anyone had success running OrCad Layout on Windows 7 ?

    No OrCAD Layout version is officially supported on Windows 7. You can run OrCAD Layout 16.2 on Windows 7 but users report varying success with stability when doing this.

     Thanks!

    I had attempted to install a previous version and it didn't work at all.

    I had the same issue. The only way I found was the install a Windows XP Mode virtual machine and install Layout on it.

    I actually now have 16.2 running on Win7. Works fine for minor design tweaks and review but there's a periodic delay in the UI that hampers primary design efforts. An XP VM is certainly the best option; I have older OrCad tools running on a full install of XP Pro in Virtualbox.
