We have a laptop with a fresh install of 16.5-s001, set to the sample CIS databae
I opened a previous project and tried to derive a part. The schematic parts and libraries in the normal local install path were there, so were the footprints from the normal (local) path!
I then added my footprint (network) directory to the CAPTURE.INI file locally on the laptop.
I opened the project and tried to derive a part. The schematic
parts and libraries in the normal install were there, so were the
footprints only from my network directory (as expected). Cancelled the derive part and added a library (just one) using the place part method, shut down Capture CIS and restarted.
I ran Capture CIS again and opened the project and tried to derive a part ALL the libraries from the directory where the one library was opened were displayed together with all the schematic parts!
I then swapped over to the database we are now using (as opposed to the sample one) and tried to derive a part again and it all works correctly!
From this my thoughts so far are:
1. My machine has a different setting/file somehwere else that is causing this behaviour?
2. The later version on my machine has caused this behaviour?
3. The laptop is using/modifying a file called CAPTURE.INI rather than Capture.INI which is curious.
I think I will try using the CAPTURE.INI file from the laptop on my machine and possibly try adding the latest Hotfixes to the laptop to see if it breaks.
Is there anything in the registry or elsewhere that could be causing this?
