    OrCAD Capture 16.5 Start Page Reply

    I just updated to v16.5 and the new Start Page/Getting Started screen is driving me nuts needing to close it every time I open a design.  How can this be disabled?

    You can disable this from “Extended Preference setup dialog”. To access this dialog select Accessories>Cadence Tcl/Tk Utilities>Utilities>Extended Preference>Launch Deselect “Load Web Page at Start up” under Design & Libraries

    Re: OrCAD Capture 16.5 Start Page (16.6 too) Reply

    I updated to OrCAD Capture 16.6 yesterday and the Start Page has returned.  If go to Accessories>Cadence Tcl/Tk Utilities>Utilities, no window appears when I choose "Utilities".  Is this a bug?  Or did this menu get moved somewhere?  Is there another way to turn off this Start Page, such as a command line command or something?

    Thanks.

    "brute force" method: Cloase any Capture sessions, locate %HOME%\cdssetup\OrCAD_Capture\16.6.0\Capture.ini, open file this with a text editor, find EnableStartPage=True, set this to EnableStartPage=False, save the modified file.
